  • Memory: How Do We Remember What We Know?

    This chapter discusses the capabilities and limitations of several components of the memory system. Sensory information storage and short-term memory are beset by severe limitations of capacity, while long-term memory, for all practical purposes, has a virtually infinite capacity. With long-term memory, the problems concern getting information into it and retrieving information once it is there, not physical limits on the amount of information that may be stored.

  • Psychology of Religion in the USA

    The psychological study of religion in the USA illustrates tensions and opportunities that exist between psychology and religion. It also demonstrates the multifaceted views taken by psychologists as they address areas of living that have personal implications.

  • Helping Couples To

    There has recently been a splash of articles in the media saying that you can predict which couples are heading for a divorce. According to research by Dr. John Gottman the key is the ratio of hurtful statements to caring statements. He's actually produced a specific set of numbers that is supposed to provide the cut-off point for a couple being at risk. While I can't vouch for Dr. Gottman's mathematics, I can support his basic premise. Typically the most damaged relationships that I work with are those with a history of verbally abusing each other when they get mad. In essence, they don't know how to "fight fairly".

  • Is Golf a Marital and Family Problem?

    As spring arrives, golf becomes a major topic for many of the couples I see. The game has exploded in popularity over the past decade for both men and women. But some men seem to become glazed over as the grass turns green, unable to think about much more than their handicaps. One of the problems with the game, as it pertains to relationships, is the amount of time it takes to play a round of golf. Add to that the strong desire to watch golf on television plus the need to practice driving and putting. You can see where being a "golf widow" is far more serious than being a "football widow."

  • Marital Conflict: Learning to Listen

    In general we are all terrible listeners. Usually within a matter of seconds our minds already begin to drift from a 100% focus on what the other person is saying. Not surprising if you think about the millions of wires in the brain, all the information stored there and how many issues are of concern to us at any given moment. The verbal skills that make us such a unique species often serve as one of the barriers to the potential for intimacy that they appear to offer. The process of not listening becomes especially evident if the speaker is saying something critical or raising an unpleasant topic.

  • Marriage and Family Processes

    Why do we hear so much about the family nowadays? The stories seem to be either negative, reformative, or where have the "good old days" gone in tone. Perhaps all of the attention owes to shared assumptions that relationships between family members is prototype for all other social relations, that the family unit is the fundamental building block for all societies, and that the family is society's shock-absorber of social change.

  • Sudden Marital Separation Syndrome

    Often couples know when their marriage is in trouble. But I am surprised at the frequency with which couples arrive at my office where only one partner seemed to realize there was a serious problem. At the heart of this is always a poor pattern of communication. Sometimes efforts are made by one spouse to express the dissatisfaction and their partner just doesn't listen. Not listening - not wanting to face a problem in the relationship - is more commonly, but not exclusively, a male issue.
