Relationship Support Services Offer ‘Marked Improvement’ to Couples

March 12, 2014  |   Posted by :   |   Blog

A recent study on relationship support interventions has highlighted the benefits of couple counselling services with regard to reducing divorce rates and improving the quality of relationships. Over 800 couples and individuals attending counselling, relationship education sessions, and marriage preparation classes reported that these supportive services helped to improve their general well-being, communication as a couple, and the quality of their relationship. The evaluation, led by the Tavistock Institute for Human Relations and funded by the Department of Education, recorded a ‘marked improvement’ on all three measures after couples counselling. Furthermore, the positive outcome prompted many couples to consider using relationship support services in the future, despite initially having low expectations of their success.
