How does non-verbal communication contribute to dealing with conflict?

Choose your attitude and behaviour, communicate openly and consider your non-verbal stance, expression and situation. This creates trust and intimacy.

Accountability can be the reason couples fail to reach a particular outcome

When couples put effort towards something, it can be helpful to foresee outcomes. Whether they work through the PREPARE/ENRICH assessment results in its entirety or section by section, articulating outcomes now and being mindful of them along the way will help guide toward finding success through this journey.

Next time a conflict comes up, take time to discuss how you dealt with the disagreement

Since it often takes time to learn new strategies and because conflicts organically develop, make a commitment to evaluate your next conflict.

Ask couples to focus solely on the issue at hand

When dealing with conflict in a couples relationship, it's important that they resist the urge to bring up past experiences that have already been resolved and reopen them for discussion. Acknowledging the current disagreement and working through the conflict by actively listening is a great goal.
