2:15 To start off this show, we are going to talk about the biggest mistake people make when they first call about relationship counseling. We are also going to continue to cover more on anger in relationships. If time allows, this show will also talk about trust.
4:20 Dr. Marty talks about the biggest mistake most people make when they first call about relationship counseling: the belief that if the “other person” doesn’t want to come in for counseling, then there is nothing they can do to save the relationship. Dr. Marty talks in detail about what can be done if only one person wants to come in for counseling.
10:40 We now change subjects, and talk in depth about anger in relationships. We will talk about what to do to avoid both screaming matches, and stonewalling.
13:00 We summarize one of the most important techniques that can be used to deal with anger.
16:10 Dr. Marty talks about how the best way to handle anger is to detect it early on.
16:30 The next best thing to do, after calming down, is to start with understanding your partner, rather than trying to make yourself understood.
18:08 Dr. Marty walks us through an exercise to understand what issues are really behind the feelings of anger.
21:05 We hear a story about how Dr. Marty and his wife were both angry at each other. An insight from his wife helped them both resolve the situation, and saved their day.
24:25 Dr. Marty walks us through a simple six step program you can use to deal with your anger.
