A recurring theme I see is with couples. The main concern is usually poor communication. Without proper communication the relationship usually falls apart, like a tug of war and both sometimes will just give up. This has helped guide my approach to ensure that this issue is addressed and couples practice new ways to implement better communication skills, being assertive and being comfortable with sharing even if the other has a different opinion.
