Scientology marriage counseling helps create an atmosphere of honesty and open communication between marital partners.

The Chaplain also ministers to Scientologists on a more personal level. Indeed, it is well known within the Scientology community that if there is some personal difficulty threatening one’s progress up the Bridge and there seems nowhere to turn, the Chaplain is always available for counseling and guidance.

Such aid can take many forms.

For example, if a couple are experiencing martial discord and find that it is affecting their progress in auditing and training, they can turn to the Chaplain to help them work through their difficulties. Chaplains are trained in ministering Scientology marriage counseling, which is an exact technology for alleviating martial problems that addresses the root of all such difficulties: transgressions against the couple’s previously agreed moral code which now inhibits their communication. Scientology marriage counseling not only restores communication, but also brings about a resurgence of the affinity and reality that go with it. Utilizing these techniques, Chaplains and other Scientology ministers have successfully salvaged thousands of marriages.

In addition to salvaging marriages, and as part of his larger effort to restore family unity, the Chaplain is often called upon to help the child. He can do so in many ways.

The young student suffering through his studies will find relief through the application of study technology. The child who cannot get along with his friends can quickly resolve the matter with communication skills learned on a course specifically designed for him.

The ill or injured child, and even infants, may be given assists – techniques developed by L. Ron Hubbard to alleviate the spiritual component of physical pain, shock and emotional trauma. Helpful to people of all ages, assists operate on the principle that one tends to withdraw mentally or spiritually from an injured area. Only by restoring communication with this area can one bring the spiritual element into healing, thereby greatly speeding the healing process. Assists are used to relieve stress and physical aches and pains, or to orient a confused or distraught individual to his present environment.

Possessing all these tools and more, the Chaplain is well equipped to counsel parents and help their children grow up happy, confident and able.

There are, of course, many problems in life capable of creating such difficulties that one’s spiritual progress is hindered. These problems include, for example, a sudden dismissal from a job, an unexpected financial reversal, or the loss of a loved one. The Chaplain is there to help in all of these circumstances.
