The latest in marriage-saving technique is being deployed in an area of society where it is sorely needed -- our veterans and their families. This story from the PAIRS Foundation, a longtime leader in the marriage education field whose curricula have been used by the American Bar Association and thousands of other providers around the country, says that V.A. chaplains, counsleors and therapists from around the country are getting trained in "evidence-based skills for improving interpersonal communication, emotional understanding and expression, and healthy conflict resolution." The program was developed by the PAIRS Foundation and funded with a three-year grant from the V.A.’s Patient-Centered Care and Cultural Transformation Initiative. 300 professionals have been trained in New York, San Diego and Georgia. More trainings are scheduled for San Antonio, Indianapolis, San Diego, and Hampton Roads.
