'Supporting Healthy Marriage' Program Offered by Montefiore
Date:3/31/2008

Aim Is to Build a Solid Foundation for Marriage and Family

NEW YORK, March 31 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Montefiore Medical Center is offering an innovative program, "Supporting Healthy Marriage" to members of the community interested in strengthening their marriages. The purpose of the program, administered by University Behavioral Associates, the behavioral health practice at Montefiore, is to build a solid foundation for marriage and family through communication, managing stress, conflict resolution and other skills for coping with the everyday worries that can create pressure in a marriage.

"Research has shown that a healthy, happy marriage is the most important factor to beneficially impact people's finances, emotional well-being, physical condition and children's academic success," said Scott Wetzler, PhD, Chief of the Division of Psychology at Montefiore and a leading authority on relationships.

The UBA program is an interactive way to strengthen marriage. Bi-monthly meeting with other couples in a relaxed atmosphere, everyone can learn simple, effective communication skills that help defuse tension surrounding many common problems couples face, such as child-raising, financial worries, stress and sexual intimacy. The program offers the opportunity to listen and be heard on these and other issues and promotes ways to have fun together as a family.

"Even if there's nothing wrong with your marriage," said Dr. Wetzler, "the program will help make your relationship even better. Couples need to pay attention to the health of their relationships just as they pay attention to their physical health. Supporting Healthy Marriage builds on your relationships strengths."

To learn more about the program, call (718) 401-5050.
