Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

An Evaluation of the Learn, Live, Hope Relationship Counseling Program in Relationship Satisfaction
by Green, Johan, D.Min., Nyack College, Alliance Theological Seminary, 2017, 211; 10269002
Abstract (Summary)

The author presents an increase in relationship dissatisfaction as a problem in ministry in the areas of Lowell, Nashua and New Ipswich. He created a ministry intervention model, which consisted of the six month LEARN-LIVE-HOPE program (Discipleship, counseling, coaching, Imago Relationship Therapy, and mentoring). He recruited eight participants. He used the Relationship Assessment Scale, Expanded Relationship Assessment Scale, and Green Relationship Assessment Scale to measure miscellaneous different constructs of relationship satisfaction, Specific needs met in relationship satisfaction and connection with one’s partner in relationship satisfaction. He interviewed eight participants and searched for indicators of love and grace, personal needs, positive and negative thoughts about one’s partner’s character; and general concepts of relationship satisfaction. The author discovered that the four instruments used to measure relationship satisfaction, suggest an increase in: Miscellaneous different constructs of relationship satisfaction, specific needs met in relationship satisfaction, and connection with partner in relationship satisfaction. The author also discovered that all participant answers in the transcripts suggest that each of the five pillars contributed towards increased relationship satisfaction. Therefore the evidence suggests that an increase in horizontal relationship satisfaction is as a result of tending to a vertical relationship with God.
