Conflict Resolution Website For Couples

June 16, 2010

While every relationship has conflicts, it is how a couple deals with and resolves the conflict that is important. Dr. Keith Sanford, associate professor of psychology and neuroscience at Baylor, who has conducted extensive research on how couples can best resolve relationship conflicts, has created a conflict resolution website for couples based on his research. Called the Couple Conflict Consultant, the program utilizes a personalized approach instead of forcing participants into a "one-size-fits-all" approach.
"The website helps participants discover their own personal style to conflict resolution," said Sanford, who designed the site. "It lets participants understand advantages and disadvantages of different techniques and sort through many options that are available for building strong communication with their partner. It's one of the few programs on the Internet that does that."
For several decades, scientists have been studying how couples resolve conflict, and they have made a tremendous number of discoveries about what works and what does not. Participants have access to a large resource bank that brings all this information to one place. As part of a research study being conducted by Sanford, the Couple Conflict Consultant is free.
