This program is particularly helpful with couples who argue futilely, escalate into fights, or, to protect themselves, withdraw during arguments/fights without resloving their differences, or have become so discouraged that they have virtually stopped communicating altogether about personal relationship issues, or any other sensitive matter and live a roomate type of existence.
