Welcome to the first podcast in our Love and Relationships Series.
Family and marriage are two topics that dominate church discourse, so we have asked Emil Harker, a licensed clinical social worker, to help us discuss ways to improve those relationships.
In this first episode, Emil interviews Jonathan Sherman, a fellow therapist, about one of the most common behaviors they find in marital relationships. It is called by many names, but ultimately it simply involves game playing to obtain the attention one seeks in a relationship.
Emil and Jonathan discuss avoiding this common pitfall that hinders rather than invites intimacy. They also suggest ideas to improve communication and satisfaction in relationships.
