New Techniques to Help Couples and Families Overcome Conflicts – Leonard Mukai, Ph.D.

Using Human Needs Psychology to bring rapid, sustainable improvements in relationships

Relationship conflicts create mental, physical, financial, and family problems. These problems include divorce, domestic violence, infidelity, depression, stress, and out-of-control children. These problems are so widespread that dramatic change is needed to overcome them.
The most effective solution is to treat the cause of the problem. The root of the problem is that individual needs are not met. This creates conflicts. The simplest example is an infant. His (or her) needs are very simple. He needs to be fed, loved, and kept comfortable. If these needs are not met then he will quickly cry or scream. Children, adolescents, and adults are similar to infants but with a few more needs. By understanding and meeting an individual’s needs, conflicts are resolved and even prevented. 
Tony Robbins and Dr. Cloe’ Madanes have developed a new school of psychology, Human Needs Psychology, and the Robbins-Madanes Institute for Strategic Intervention in order to give people tools to overcome and prevent conflicts.

Come to a free introductory session on Human Needs Psychology. It will include a video of a powerful intervention by Tony Robbins that restored a distressed marriage.
