Learn “Mindful Communication” and Save Your Relationship, 4 Things You Can Talk About…By Ilissa Banhazl, MFT San Dimas

Tell your partner what you need.

Tell your partner what you need.

Most times when couples discuss things and it turns into an argument its because each person is fighting to win and be right. “Mindful Communication” teaches you that there are no right or wrongs. Trying to win is loosing. Trying to understand your partner’s experience of an event is winning because you are gathering important information.

What I also like about “Mindful Communication” is that no one interrupts, the listener can ask for clarification and the speaker can make a request. I find that using the “Mindful Communication Script” helps couples avoid the petty back and forth comments that are usually futile.

4 Topics you might discuss using the Mindful Communication Script:

1. Finances

2. Sex

3. Distribution of Chores

4. Parenting

If you would like to learn this skill and improve communication with your partner, consider a couple of sessions of therapy. (626) 335-0903, ilissa@ilissabanhazlmft.com
