Licensed Clinical Social Worker Janae Munday has published a list of tips to help couples to reduce the stressful impact of vacation travel on relationships.


An experienced couples therapist who works with patients in the Phoenix, Arizona area, Ms. Munday explains that summertime vacation travel can often uncover hidden rifts in relationships that may point to larger issues that should be addressed thoughtfully.


Some of Ms. Munday’s most effective tips include:


— Watch for signs of tension during travel. Can your partner be flexible and roll with the punches when things go wrong? Can s/he take turns choosing what to do, or is s/he insistent on setting 100% of the agenda?


— Married couples may be happier if they book separate vacations, but this may also be a sign of major stress in the relationship. If you’re most content when you’re apart, then there’s more work to do.


— If conflict during becomes a set pattern, couples may need to look at deeper relationship issues with an experienced couples therapist.


When asked about the list, Ms. Munday said, “I’ve put together these ideas with summer travel in mind, but the suggestions are useful to couples of all kinds year-round. I’ve included special thoughts about honeymoons, which can be a flashpoint for newly married couples who’ve just endured the stress and strain of their wedding and may suffer more conflicts than they ever dreamed they’d have on this long-dreamed-of trip.”


The tips are offered for all couples, whether married or living together. Ms. Munday works with long-time married couples, newly engaged couples and same-sex partners. Any questions can be answered by going to the company website, www.janaemundaylcsw.com, and filling out the contact form there. Ms. Munday is happy to offer a personalized consultation for all couples living in the Phoenix, Arizona area.
