Psychologist-Sara-Chatwin-The-Project

The Project 

New Relationship Research indicated that ARGUING could positively influence relationships!? Psychologist Sara Chatwin interpreted the findings reminding us that it's more a case of raising issues that are important to both parties and having a 'reasonable'  dialogue as opposed to an out-in-out ROW that can help couples move forward!
