Keeping your point or comment as short and simple as possible can be very helpful for good communication. The more detail added the more likely the person listening may be to forget what your main point is or to focus on less relevant aspects of what you are saying. It can also be helpful to only focus on one thought or idea at a time. There are times when many issues can be discussed at the same time with success. However, in more difficult or emotional conversations or if a conversation is not working, trying to stick with one idea at a time can improve the chances of issues being heard, understood and resolved.

Feelings, however, may be discussed in clusters. For example someone may express feeling hurt, sad and frustrated. Though multiple feelings are being discussed, all the feelings discussed are still under a single category of feelings. Perceptions of a situation or the issues to be explored generally need to be limited to one aspect or idea at a time. For example, discussing camping plans may involve discussing when to leave, what to pack where to go and when to return. Even though the issues are related and interrelated (leaving to go camping sooner may also mean returning from camping sooner), discussing each aspect individually, at least until the individual issues are understood reasonably well, may lead to the most success in working out the overall issue being discussed.

Murray works collaboratively with his clients to bring about the changes they would like to make. He often uses a three part model to facilitate these changes. This includes looking at the difficult feelings a person may be struggling with (for example, loss, depression, anxiety, stress or anger) to help learn why the difficult feelings are there and to potentially deal with or eliminate them permanently, often reducing or eliminating the need for anti-depressant medications.

Difficult or unwanted thoughts are dealt with. Thoughts such as, �I am less important or not as valuable as others.� Core beliefs and values, such as beliefs about relationships, trust, honesty, fidelity, finances, commitment, parenting and communication that a person or couple are struggling with are dealt with. Accurate insight into the underlying reasons or root causes for the issues people struggle with can be addressed to help make significant changes that last.

Often people lack the skills or lack the ability to make the changes they want. For example, they may not know how to confront someone who is treating them poorly without either giving in or acting overly hostile towards the person. Other people may know how they should act but cannot follow through when they need to. The new skills to help resolve problem issues are addressed and help is given to be able to follow through with using the skills.

Help is offered for people to use the new insights and skills, and the change in negative feelings to benefit themselves individually, to have more fulfilling work situations and in significant relationships so that couples and families can have the better life, connection and communication that they desire.
