Abstract

Marital counseling as a profession and counselors individually are deemed to be in need of a sound set of substantial standards and values, with philosophical and psychological, as well as sociological, commitments. The thesis is that in marriage counseling we must ever keep in mind, and predicate our therapy on, the essence of humanity in daily living: morality, ethics, parenthood, personal integrity, basic truths, the efficacy of family living. No less are love and understanding, in their realistic connotations, essential values and basic forces in marriage. This argument for values in counseling stresses the psychological factors of womanliness and manliness in contemporary living.
