Help for Marriage: Dr. Ken Newberger, who holds a Ph.D in Conflict Analysis and Resolution, provides couples with a cutting-edge alternative to traditional counseling. Unlike conventional counseling for couples, his approach:
(1) is proactive
(2) yields a treasure trove of highly insightful information
(3) gets to the heart of the matter more quickly
(4) has relationship reconciliation as the goal
There are studies that show that many traditional marriage counselors and therapists are not goal-directed. These individuals were trained, in essence, to "lead from behind." Dr. Newberger, by contrast, takes a much more proactive approach. Unlike the customary way marriage counselors elicit information from a couple, Dr. Newberger uses multiple assessment tools the couple will complete between their first and second joint sessions. This means that early on Dr. Newberger will obtain a large amount of information about the two of you. This will occur far faster than would otherwise be the case with a traditional marriage counselor. Prior to the second joint session, he will create a strategic agenda that gets to your core issues in quick order. Because Dr. Newberger's work focuses on reconnection and not mental health diagnoses or medical treatment, the amount of time to work through his process is typically shorter than marital therapy. The sad truth is, a marriage may dissolve well before the fruits of therapy ever materialize.
As explained elsewhere, conventional counseling is not necessarily about repairing the relationship. Traditional marriage counselors have no predisposition as to whether a couple stays together or separates. By contrast, Dr. Newberger sets relationship reconciliation as the goal. As the architect of the "Reconciliation Model of Peacemaking," his expertise is promoting healthy and harmonious relationships. He will fight to make your marriage a healthier, happier one!
