Bodenmann, Guy; Widmer, Kathrin; Cina, Annette (1999). Das Freiburger Streßpräventionstraining für Paare (FSPT): Selbstwahrgenommene Verbesserungen innerhalb von 6 Monate. Verhaltenstherapie, 9(2):87-94.

Abstract

The Couples Coping Enhancement Training (CCET) represents a novel preventive approach for couples focusing on the enhancement of relevant skills which predict a better course of the relationship and a lower risk for divorce. Marital and stress research have shown that particularly four competencies act as important resources: (a) communication skills, (b) problem-solving capacities, (c) adequate individual stress management, and (d) dyadic coping competencies. Thus, these findings suggest to teach couples such competencies at a relatively early stage in their relationship. Whereas several preventive trainings for couples focusing on marital communication already exist, the CCET is new in that it primarily focuses on the coping skills of couples. The rationale of our approach is to strengthen marriage by better managing everyday stress. As several studies reveal, stress is an important negative factor for close relationships and gradually destroys marriage over time. The effectiveness of the CCET is evaluated in this article in regard to the subjective appraisals of changes of (a) the relevant skills and (b) the marriage in general within six months. The results reveal that couples who participated in the CCET report a significant better improvement of their relationship, whereas the couples of the control group do not. Thus, the effectiveness of this new preventive training could be established within six months.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
