Are you looking for marriage counseling online, or are you looking to find a degree program online so that you can become an online marriage counselor?
Amazingly enough, both the provision of marriage counseling and the education of marriage counselors can be accomplished at your computer.
All kinds of counseling is happening online now, through e-mail, chat, video conferencing, or skype, or phone, and there are counselors and dating sites that are offering marriage counseling online.
There is emerging research about the efficacy of phone counseling for diet counseling, smoking cessation, depression, and even PTSD, which seems really amazing to me, the guy who grew up thinking that counseling needed to happen face to face.
That face to face situation is so important for me because of the non-verbal communications that we all make, which are actually most of the communication anyway.
It turns out that if I can only hear a person, my brain focuses on just the subtle changes in intonation, perhaps because the auditory centers of my brain recruit the visual cortex to help out.
And of course, with a video camera, non-verbal communication can be surveyed and cataloged by the participants, so some of what were objections to online marriage counseling have been modified if not overcome by technology.
And online marriage counseling can be more economical, can help couples wanting or needing services to overcome scheduling difficulties, distance to the office issues, and perhaps economic circumstances.
This excerpt is from the catalog for one online program I found at elearners.
"Courses begin on the first of each month, and may be completed anytime within a 12-week semester. Learners may begin their next course ahead of schedule upon completion of the previous course in order to move quickly through their degree program."
I did not know that online learners could move faster through the schedule than I could at my bricks and mortar classes.
Do you want to find a mate online? I am seeing statistics that say that 1 in 8 marriages happening now are for couples that met online.
Want divorce prevention? There are entire courses online, including Save My Marriage Today. So there is a great deal of evidence that online marriage counseling is part of a growing trend for the provision of relationship information from love at first sight all the way to divorce, and there are divorce support groups and grieving information available to.
I have read about Helen Fisher's work with fMRI on in love brains, and I have read about her work with Chemistry.com.
If you are looking for an assessment tool and a 'chemistry' based relationship, you should start here.
When I was beginning my personal growth journey, a wise person told me that when I was feeling resentful or afraid or sad, that I should remember the phrase "gratitude is the attitude" when I was ready to feel better. That phrase has helped me feel better tens of thousands of times.
Would you share what you are most grateful for? Your story could be just what another person is searching for to renew themselves? Thanks.
