OHEL Marriage Webinar Draws Hundreds
Addressing the Everyday Challenges of Marriage
Over 200 participants from New York to Los Angeles, Toronto to Israel attended OHELâ€™s recent live and free Webinar â€śEnhancing the Marital Relationshipâ€ť.
Leading OHEL marriage and family experts Dr. Hindie M. Klein and Simcha Feuerman, LCSW-R provided both professional insights into the spousal relationship and practical steps to uplift any marriage. The â€ś12 Transformational Tools to Defuse Marital Conflict" that were presented were based on Rabbi Feuerman's new book "Marriage 911", which he co-authored with his wife, Chaya Feuerman, LCSW-R.
Dr. Hindie Klein, OHELâ€™s Director of Clinical Projects, commented that â€śthe number and diversity of attendees- from spouses to mental health professionals, and from geographical locations around the globe- reflects a universal understanding of the increasing everyday challenges that can strain any good marriage. To see such proactive engagement by couples and professionals is highly commendableâ€ť.
Some of the tools discussed included how to properly manage anxiety, and how to root out passive aggressive behavior.Â Another key tool emphasized was never turn down an apology, as well as to take full responsibility for your part of the problem.
Simcha Feuerman, OHELâ€™s Director of Operations, conveyed that â€świth over 44 years of experience in the community, OHEL is the "go to" source for expertise and experience in mental health, and now via the web, is reaching an audience far and wide.â€ť
For those that missed the live webinar, the entire session was recorded, and is live on ohelfamily.org.
