It may take you a while to leave your own land!
Especially for the "blended" couple, where one was raised in an agricultural area and another in a city, there are adjustments. One may want frequent "get-aways," while another prefers to stay close to home.
Farmers, ranchers, and those living in extremely rural areas raising crops or livestock know the challenges of finding talented therapeutic help close to home.
So many advantages, but sometimes stress and tension impacts your relationship:
You're not alone anymore with your marital struggles. Give us a call. We work with International and ESL teachers worldwide.
Our Couples Therapists are specialists in helping troubled relationships. Our Associates have training in at least two approaches to helping troubled couples. Five are former Program Directors of Graduate Programs, or have taught at a graduate level. We currently have 13 couples therapists licensed across the USA, and in Puerto Rico, and one licensed in Ireland, as well as two post-graduate interns, offering services at a lower fee.
We are also particularly sensitive to couples from two different cultures, perhaps living in a third country. Many of us have lived in other countries, or have traveled extensively.
We know the questions to ask to determine:
"Is it personal or is it a cultural difference?"
We avoid pathologizing cultural variation, and respect all cultures.
We do not, however, condone violence inside the home, and work hard to assure that individuals get help that they need to stop it
An International Couple can be defined in a number of ways. Sometimes each partner is from a different country or culture. Sometimes they are from the same country, but live together in a foreign land.
Many students travel around the world to study and learn. This can strain their relationship. International students are often learning a new language and customs, as well as studying in school.
Maintaining a happy marriage can be a special challenge to the International Couple. They have had to master not only how to live together, but to manage many other issues as well. They've had to grow and change together. They have to be willing and open to engaging in new rituals and practices. They have successfully done many of these things already, in order to be a couple. But sometimes they face a barrier they cannot seem to figure out how to climb over.
We practice couples therapy with international couples online and have taught cross-cultural sensitivity and ethnic differences to marriage and family therapy graduate students at several schools of psychology. One of us (Dr. Ham) is an internationally recognized expert on cross-culturalism.
Working with International Couples from around the world takes special skills and knowledge to be of effective help.
We know how careful we must be in really understanding an International Couple. Using online couples therapy with International Couples also takes special skills.
Using a secure video-conferencing program is more than technology. It is knowing how to combine couples psychotherapy, in evidence-based lengths, with online therapy, to get the best results. That’s why we’ve studied online psychotherapy AND couples therapy extensively.
