Couples Therapy In Seven Words

Be Kind, Don’t Panic, and Have Faith. Psychologist Dr. Bruce Chalmer and educator Judy Alexander talk about relationships, and answer your questions.

What good is panic? And how does it affect your relationships? We talk about how panic affects us, and then handle a listener question: How can a woman who's only been with women before tell a guy she loves that their sex life isn't doing it for her?

What are the gifts you need for your relationship to thrive? We talk about stability and intimacy--how they're both vital, but sometimes conflict. Then we tackle a listener question: He wants to watch porn with her to spice up their sex life, she thinks he's a pervert for suggesting it. Now what?

The topic is kindness--not just being nice, but in the stronger (and more difficult) sense of being kin. We explain how assuming good will helps shape your relationship toward that sense of kinship. Then we talk about a provocative listener question: how can their marriage survive when one partner can't stand President Trump, and the other supports him?
