This is a manual for choice making when couple relationships begin to suffer and difficult passages become more frequent. 

One assumption is that both partners intend to preserve and enhance the relationship they have formed.

 

“COUPLE” is defined as a two-person relationship wherein each regards the other as “ SIGNIFICANT”! This would include special friendships, people who live together, people who are engaged, and people who are married to each other.

 

The suggestions provided in this reading may also apply to colleagues, fellow workers, neighbors, and those of you who enjoy doing “Random Acts of Kindness” occasionally as well as intentionally.

 

These ideas have accumulated since 1954, and have developed in design and teaching of a special course entitled “Facilitating Interpersonal Relationships” and Workshops at Miami University, Indiana University, and Eastern Illinois University.

 

This work is intended for all of us who have hoped that all was well and discovered that it wasn’t, and didn’t quite know what to do about it.  Stride firmly as you find things that may make positive differences for you and the significant ones whose hopes are blended

with yours.

About the author (2004)

Robert E. Saltmarsh ED.D. is usually called Bob or Salty. He is retired from Eastern Illinois University Since 1997 when he completed his tour as Chair Person of the Department of Counseling and Student Development. He initiated efforts to achieve what are now fully accredited Master of Sc. and Master of Ed. Degree programs in both Community and School Counseling. These programs lead to Licensure and or Certification in these fields. Bob began his career as a High School Teacher and Head Football Coach in Ohio (1954). His talents as a Counselor emerged quickly as demanded by the class room and the locker room. Completion of Master's Degree (Miami (O) 1964) and Doctorate (Indiana University I969) led to Faculty Status at Eastern Illinois University in I969 as a Teacher and Counselor Educator. Believing that teaching others about counseling is best supported by doing counseling one's self, Bob established a part time private practice which endures today. His professional, academic, and anecdotalcontributions have appeared in journals, regional media, and local publications. Presentations at National, State, and Private Conventions and Workshops have been well received. Prior to retirement, such presentations averaged 20 to 30 per academic year. The BARK & PEAK Models were developed and clarified during the 43 years of Salty's personal and professional adventures. Salty and Wife - Markay are pleased to be called "Snow Birds" and spend winter months in Florida, believing that retirement is indeed a gift.
