What to do to soothe your companion.


It's important to have someone on your side who understands your distress.  Through showing compassion the other feels cared about and accepted helping them calm down and get over the distress.  Many couples admit they don't know anything about how to soothe the other person.  Talk about what helps the other person feel better.  Sometimes soothing comes in the form of listening and responding appropriately, comforting touch, or maybe even leaving the other alone.  This week, Dr. Jankovich talks about how to discuss soothing and where to place your focus.  Dr. Rebecca Jankovich airs Thursday mornings on 88.7 FM, KUNR, and can be reached at 775-322-1839.
