Conflict resolution is important for couples when they come to a standstill regarding a divisive issue. For example, couples may have great difficulty figuring out how to discuss having children, how to discipline children, religion, finances, or managing in-law relationships. Though couples may communicate well in other ways, it is not uncommon for them to experience frustration when facing an impasse in a certain area of conflict. These conflicts can be either acute or chronic and can have significant impact on strength and intimacy of a relationship. Additionally, conflicts that are left unresolved can have a negative impact on other members of the family, co-workers, friends or other people close to the situation.
At Biltmore Psychology & Counseling, our Psychologists often work with couples to help them better communicate through these difficult topics and find resolve for long-standing arguments and places of marital tension.
