Counseling
THE SOUND
RELATIONSHIP HOUSE
By Carrie Jones, LCSW
One of the most basic yet crucial elements
of moving to Shanghai is setting up our
homes. Most of us spend some degree of
time, effort and money making sure our
house or apartment is a refuge and sanctuary from the busyness and stress of life here,
a place in which we feel safe and comfortable. Are we as intentional however, about
ensuring our family relationships are as safe
and healthy as our homes? The answer to
this question should be a resounding yes!
Marriage therapists John and Julie Gottman
have outlined seven relationship levels that
when used together, can build a “Sound
Relationship House.” The Gottmans apply
this concept to marriages, but it can easily
be extended to all family relationships. Refer
to these levels to help strengthen the emotional health and bonds within your family:
Level 1: Build Love Maps
Know One Another
According to the Gottmans, “Masters of
relationships have developed a map of the
world of their partners, a map of their partner’s history, concerns, preferences, that
is the current world of their partner.” Just
because we knew our spouse when we first
married, doesn’t mean we still know them
today. Similarly, just because we knew our
child when he or she was 4, doesn’t mean
we still know them at 14. People change
with time and experience. Be purposeful
about keeping current on loved ones likes,
dislikes, interests, and activities.
Level 2: Share Fondness and
Admiration
It’s not sufficient just to love our spouse or
child – we must find meaningful ways to
express our love for them on a regular basis
in a way they can understand and or receive.
The book titled The Five Love Languages,
states that some people like to hear, “I love
you,” while others might prefer a hug or a
back rub, while still others crave your time
and attention.
12 | www.communitycenter.cn
Level 3: Turn Towards Each Other
Build the Emotional Bank Account
The Gottmans coined a phrase, “bids for
attention,” which refers to when one
partner makes a passing comment (not
something that necessarily needs an answer
or direct response) in the presence of the
other. A husband might comment on a
news story he is reading or a wife might
remark on the scenery as they are driving.
“Turning towards” is when the other partner
responds and engages in a dialogue, signaling a desire to communicate, which fosters a
healthy relationship. The 5:1 principal states
that to build healthy relationships every
negative statement or criticism should be
balanced by five positive statements. ‘Turning towards’ one another helps build the
emotional bank account, ensuring plenty of
positive interaction is occurring on a regular
basis. Sharing positive statements helps
balance out the inevitable times when conflict arises or when a complaint does have to
be shared (these can be viewed as withdrawals from the emotional bank account).
It is crucial that we express plenty of specific
praise and words of love and affection as
well as “turning towards” one another.
Level 4: The Positive Perspective
Some of us may reach a point in which just
the sound of someone’s voice irritates us.
It doesn’t matter what they say, we are annoyed as soon as that individual opens their
mouth. It’s important to deal with negative
sentiments and feelings before they reach
this point. If we find ourselves nearing or
reaching this level with a loved one, we
must do something to change the dynamic
of the relationship. As tempting as it may
be, we must not allow ourselves to dwell on
the irritating or annoying qualities we see,
instead, we should seek out and focus on
the positive qualities they posses. Consider
scheduling regular times to have fun with
and relate to one another in a more positive
way rather than staying stuck in the same
patterns of predictable day-to-day routines.
Level 5: Manage Conflict
Conflict is inevitable. It is not possible to
completely avoid it, but it is possible to
manage it in a healthy way. The Gottmans
emphasize that in every interaction, there
are two valid realities, not just one.
We must take time to listen to our loved
ones, try to understand (even if not accept)
their points of view, and invest time in
developing skills to navigate conflicts. When
families find they must discuss a potentially
sensitive subject, they can utilize a skill that
the Gottmans teach called softened startup. Softened-start up involves talking about
one’s own feelings and then expressing a
positive need (a wish, a hope or a desire).
Softened start up is effective especially
when we are aware of the importance of
timing when initiating a potentially emotionally charged conversation (i.e., not right
when someone walks in the door after a
long day at work or school.) If the timing is
beneficial then family members can start
the conversation off gently and on a positive
note before gradually moving into the heart
of the matter.
Level 6: Make Life Dreams Come True
One of the best ways to strengthen and
enhance our relationships is by working
towards a mutual goal. One of the most
powerful ways parents can do this is to
express belief and confidence in their
children and help them accomplish their
goals (the child’s, not the parents’), both
short and long-term. Similarly, spouses
should also find ways to express faith in
each other’s goals and support one another
to achieve them both personally and professionally. It is also important to have shared
dreams as a family and to actively work to
realize these. Working together towards
a common cause has unlimited potential
in uniting families and building the bonds
between family members.
Level 7: Create Shared Meaning
Legacy, Values, and Rituals of
Connection
It is very easy to get caught up in the day to
day practical aspects of life and forget the
bigger meaning or purpose. Families should
take time to talk about what really matters
to them, be it values, morals, principals or
spiritual foundations. These are the roots
that will help support families in the rough
times and ensure they grow together,
towards a stronger and healthier future.
Rituals of connection (traditions) also have
tremendous value in defining and uniting
a family. Regardless of where we live, it’s
important to have special family traditions,
especially while living in Shanghai where the
broader culture may not be celebrating the
same special holidays and life events that we
do. In many ways, it’s up to us to create the
atmosphere and festivity of the holiday and
to make celebrations a significant event for
our families. We must try to find a balance
between continuing old traditions while also
creating new traditions here.
If you find yourself in need of
guidance when navigating through these
levels (things are always easier in theory
than in practice!) or just in need of general
support, don’t hesitate to reach out.
CCS has counselors with solid experience
working with families and they fully understanding the unique challenges families face
living here in Shanghai.
