LEARNING FROM OTHERS
We can all learn from the experiences and expertise of others.
For years, western nations have experienced huge changes in family life. The most prominent of those changes has been a steady and relentless reduction in family stability and increase in family breakdown. Until recently, the prevailing assumption appears to have been that such change is inevitable, that family breakdown is largely unavoidable. It is not.
In this video, Harry Benson of Bristol Community Family Trust (BCFT) discusses the key problem and some potential evidence-based solutions.
Benson believes that one of the secrets of a great relationship is all about attitude and how we turn that into behaviour towards one another. Research shows that learning how to keep a lid on our bad habits and adopting a few more good habits adds to building great relationships between couples.
BCFT is a non-profit charity focused on the prevention of family breakdown and actively promotes relationship education – the teaching and coaching of indiv-iduals and couples on how to have a happy, healthy and stable relationship. Relationship education can contribute significantly to an overall strategy geared towards stemming and turning back the rising tide of family breakdown.
