Abstract:

The underlying purpose of this project was to measure the effectiveness of the Blended Family Seminar for equipping members for healthier marriages/families. The hypothesis undergirding this project was: An interest satisfaction approach that reframes unique issues/challenges faced by blended families at The Church On The Way will equip them for healthier marriages/families. An interest satisfaction approach that reframes issues and unlocks couples from untenable positions was a critically important framing skill component to a healthy marriage. Lack of an interest satisfaction approach undermines a couple's willingness and ability to relate from a higher level of trust. In addition, an interest satisfaction approach that fosters interpersonal trust-formation along with its respective levels within married life has been an area generally overlooked or not considered at all. Lack of a skill set that reframes issues in light of compelling interests, rather than reacting to complaints in a marriage as a fixed way of being with them (e.g., making the other party wrong so one can be right, thus lowering trust, losing creativity, passion, and intimacy, etc.) locks couples into stake-holding positions. Then the assumption is that scripted reacting rather than reframing is problem-solving. Such an approach necessitated the development of an adapted but new assessment instrument. Thus a dynamic, non-externalizing, incarnational, ontological, perichoretic process and interest-based assessment instrument that becomes a reframing skill set was developed over one that is non-ontological and monochoretic, issue driven, and tended to invoke a reaction that becomes a static scripted response. It was felt that the latter assessment instruments may tend to have an inherent weakness by measuring externalized behaviors or static criteria for person/spiritual formation. Accordingly, the "inside-out" process oriented instrument suggested for this project tended to be remedial, preventative, going to the spirit behind the problem interface, rather than triggering "outside-in "Pharisaic" legalistic legislation from consequences. Accordingly, the new instrument (Relational Satisfaction Index, RSI) was designed to measure family health among blended family members.
