One of the major problems facing the families is marital disharmony, increasingly among newly wedded couples and, surprisingly, even among older couples. It is important to sort out the differences through structured marital therapy, rather than living in distress.
Marital therapy is designed out of the principles of cognitive therapy. The couple will be helped to identify individual attitudes and behaviour contributing to conflicts. Then both will be given independent and joint tasks to overcome such differences.
The therapy will sensitize the couple to the emotional needs of the partner and to engage in emotionally fulfilling interactions.
The therapy will also focus on enhancing the communication between the couples, as most of the problems arise through bad or no communication.
