relationship will encounter some measure of disagreement with differing beliefs, values, feelings and goals. Nearly all conflicts involve underlying emotional issues. Dr. Paul Standal helps his clients in relationship learn healthy ways to communicate during conflict and conflict resolution processes. The stronger the feelings, the more challenging the resolution will be. Conflict occurs because we have different maps of reality. We have different, often conflicting, conditions of worth, values, self-interest, attitudes and opinions that are reinforced and fueled by emotion. Dr. Standal teaches and helps many couples, especially those who experience “hyper-arousal” in their conflicts, follow rules for fair fighting.
To resolve conflicts, it is necessary to address the needs and feelings of all parties, but also incorporate a set of rational principles that takes into account the underlying emotional aspects of any conflict. Dr. Standal helps couples and families in a more rational approach to negotiating their differences.
