How to take a "Time Out"

A tool for couples who fight and want to stop. How to not get stuck or hurt each other.

At some point when we get into an argument, especially one we have had before, we know where it is going and that we don't want to go there. But we don't know how to stop and regroup and resolve the issue creatively. Here are some clear and straightforward steps that, if your take them, will lead you around the roadblocks.

In my 40 years as a psychotherapist I have offered my clients the most practical help I could find. Insight is not enough to solve the problems of daily living. We have to actually change our own behaviors. These changes are sometimes powerful and often simple, but rarely easy.

Taking lessons from the individuals, couples and families with which I have worked, I have produced guided modules that will help anyone who is looking to improve his or her significant relationships. This site makes those lessons available to many more people than I could serve in my office.

Much of my work as a pastoral psychotherapist has been with individuals and couples in highly conflicted and even abusive relationships. Learning how to help them has given me an understanding of how to describe complex and confusing concepts in a manner that can be easily understood.

If you have questions about the material, just make a comment on the page where you have the concern and I will respond as quickly as I can. Or email me at [email protected]
