Watch Bob Zielinski Co-Founder & Co-Executive Director and www.marriagemanagement.org filmed at The Stephen A. Cohen Military Family Clinic at Endeavors.  “Many military members, returning from deployment, frequently have varying degrees of difficulty reconnecting with their spouses and family.  Frequently this begins a cycle of alcohol and drug abuse, destructive behaviors, divorce, homelessness and suicide.  This destructive cycle increased with each additional deployment.  Marriage Management helps stabilize the marriage and provide the tools needed to build a healthy relationship and family”. “30% of Military Suicides had a failed intimate relationship in the prior month! Our mission is to mitigate that stress by giving the Veteran real-world tools to combat these effects and effectively manage dangerous triggers, damaging behaviors and resolve conflicts in a healthy manner. Veterans should not have to sacrifice their marriage because they served their country”.
