Making Love Last: Dr. Michael Dadson Launches Couples Groups

A new Couples Group Program is being launched by renowned mental health expert, Dr. Michael Dadson. It addresses the critical need for couples to develop the interpersonal skills required to deepen intimacy and make love last in a relationship.

According to Dr. Dadson:

“There is a natural process and evolution in relationships. Communication and the art of sending, listening, and receiving the messages, build your relationship from the inside out.”

The Problem:

Couples can lack the interpersonal skills to establish deep and lasting intimacy which allows the relationship to grow through time.
Love hurts and especially romantic love. Relationships, particularly, are one of the most meaningful ways for humans to find purpose, contentment, and happiness. Dr. Michael Dadson reminds couples that “resolving your differences through collaborative decisions allows you to stay on the same team!”

The Approach:

Couples Working Groups

Since early 2020, Mike Dadson has voiced concern for couples, and points out that communication skills are critical to resolve conflict, mend ruptures, and deepen security and closeness in a couple’s love life.

According to Dr. Michael Dadson:

“Communication and the art of listening, sending & receiving messages, will build your relationship from the inside out. How a conversation is started, often predicts how it will end.  Learning the 4 essentials to conflict resolution and how to have a difficult conversation with someone who matters” is important.

Dr. Michael Dadson recommends that couples focus on communication skills before a rupture becomes a crisis:

“Listening leads to understanding.”

  1. Pause, reflect, consider the motional state of mind.
  2. Attending to the micro-relationship messages in the eyes, the face, the tone and volume.
  3. Learn to interpret the message from the other person.
  4. Reflect and check to see if the interpretation is correct.
  5. The goal is to help partners to not only be understood but to feel understood.

In his practice at Gentle Currents Therapy Counselling Clinic, Dr. Michael Dadson helps clients with trauma, anxiety, depression, and PTSD, with a focus on couples counselling, first responders, and male mental health.

Due to Dr. Dadson’s specialization in working with men, he finds that couples will often seek out his services as he can help women understand:

“Men process emotions differently due to their biology and cultural conditioning”.
