What is the theory behind this Marriage Counseling Worksheet?

Many couples seek marriage counseling at one point or another to resolve conflicts, and misunderstandings that are negatively affecting their relationship satisfaction and ultimately driving them apart. 

The purpose is to help them look past their differences at a conflicting time and focus on the good in their lives which often seems to go unnoticed. One way to do that is to help them build a relationship timeline together. 

How will the worksheet help?

This worksheet will help couples seeking marriage counseling to work together on building a timeline of their relationship that features significant milestones and challenges that they have faced and overcome as a couple. 

This exercise will help them recall not just the good times they have shared but also the challenges that they faced together in hopes of fostering a shared understanding. 

How to use the worksheet?

Instruct the couple to work on building a relationship timeline where they highlight major positive and negative events they have faced as a couple. They can do this exercise at home or while in session. 

The counselor can then initiate further discussions to explore their memories and emotions attached to the events as the sessions proceed.
