ABSTRACT

Communication between husband and wife is one of the keys to successful family life; thus, it is necessary to handle it carefully, especially when the communication pattern appears unhealthy. Starting from the husband, who often changed his decisions without communicating it to his wife, it caused deep disappointment. This disappointment caused the wife to be more emotional and angry more often, while at the same time, the husband also continued to feel cornered by the unwanted situation. Regarding this phenomenon, the current study applied an intervention called Solution-Focused Therapy. The results of the intervention showed that there was an improvement in the communication patterns between the husband and the wife. It can be seen from the wife who tried to improve the way she communicated with her husband using soft tones, while the husband also tried not to make the same mistakes.
