I have attached the discussion I completed the first time. No Plagiarism please.
Discussion 1: Healthy Couples
Every relationship, to varying degrees of frequency and seriousness, faces a range of common issues. As you encounter various relationships in your counseling practice, you will discover that, while they may share common issues, the issues still need to be addressed or the impact could be profound. Fortunately, as a marriage, couple, and family counselor, there are evidence-based approaches that can help you address these issues.
In this Discussion, you examine healthy and functional marriages or partnerships. Next, you explain the impact of your conceptual framework on your approach to working with couples.
Post by Day 3 a brief description of a healthy and functional marriage or partnership. Explain how your synopsis relates to the resources: Gottman’s work as discussed in the Learning Resources and Family Relationships of Lesbians and Gay Men (Patterson, 2000). Then, explain how your conceptual framework of a healthy and functional marriage or partnership impacts your approach to working with couples.
Read a selection of your colleagues’ postings.
Respond by Day 5 to at least one of your colleagues’ postings. Respond in one or more of the following ways:
- Share an insight from having read your colleague’s posting
- Offer and support an opinion
- Validate an idea with your own experience
- Expand on your colleague’s posting
Be sure to support your postings and responses with specific references to the Learning Resources.
