The following list outlines the other necessary steps in making the most of your time in marriage counseling:

  • Active participation
  • Polite listening
  • Honest discussion
  • Cooperative testing of techniques
  • Loyalty to spouse
  • Respect to counselor

Practicing these tips will help you and your spouse through the counseling process. Mutual respect is incredibly important and practicing this during counseling can serve as a model to you and your spouse long after you leave a counseling session.
