Conflict resolution methods in family matters
Disputes in the partnership or family are often very painful. Emotional injuries lead to loss of trust, failed relationships to fear of loss, looking back on years of investment of feelings and commitment to frustration and resignation. This often results in extreme positioning concerning one’s own needs. Everyone tries to balance the “inner bookkeeping” somehow. However, family ties often exist beyond the end of a partnership or marriage: shared children, jointly created values, shared relationships with third parties. To protect these continuing ties, you should choose very carefully how you want to resolve your conflict. I will support you in making the best choice for you and your family system. I will tell you openly if, in my view, none of the methods I offer can be helpful for you and will refer you to other professionals if you wish.
