In our lives, we have people around us who are meaningful and important: family, close friends, and significant others. Our connections with these people serve as a means of mutual support, acceptance, companionship, and closeness. Often these people help us to remain grounded, even when we have a sense of uncertainty about other aspects of our lives.

stir-up or represent a much deeper conflict. Still there are other times, where there is
not conflict, but something about our interpersonal situation with the other person changes, and it's
challenging to put our finger on what has occurred. Perhaps the only thing we know is that something
about the quality of our connection to the person has become different and we would like to change it.

interpersonal situation that we want to change, something about our connection with the other person,
but it would not be categorized as a conflict. For both of these types of situations,
has developed an approach to
