What Are Relationship Concerns?
Significant relationship concerns might arise in cases where relationships are high in conflict, when there have been significant violations in trust such as infidelity, where one or both partners/individuals in the relationship is struggling with significant personal stressors such as medical or family crises, when the relationship undergoes major transitions such as having a baby or job changes, when the relationship must endure shared or individual losses of loved ones, and/or when the relationship involves emotional, sexual, or physical abuse.
A person struggling with relationship issues may experience many symptoms associated with their concerns including excessive anxiety and/or worry, sadness or depression, excessive guilt or shame, decreases in self-esteem, worthlessness and helplessness, withdrawing from and isolating from others, traumatic reactions, etc.
How Are Relationship Concerns Treated?
Relationship concerns can be treated via individual counseling or couples counseling.
