BLOOMINGTON, IN (PRWEB) July 11, 2004
Beatty Cohan, veteran psychotherapist and AuthorHouse writer, has been appointed by Florida Gov. Jeb Bush to his stateÂs Commission on Marriage and Family Support Initiatives. The co-author of the groundbreaking book on relationships, For Better, For Worse, Forever: Discover the Path to Lasting Love, Cohan brings her expertise to FloridaÂs effort to promote viable partnerships.
CohanÂs appointment to this prestigious group of Floridians allows her to spread the message of her book. Published by AuthorHouse, the countryÂs leading provider of self-publishing services, For Better, For Worse, Forever, which she co-authored with her husband, Elliot, outlines CohanÂs revolutionary ideas about evaluating a partnerÂs potential for a long-term relationship. It provides a proven, 10-step formula to make the assessment and has the potential to significantly reduce AmericaÂs staggeringly high divorce rate.
Her new role on the commission allows Cohan to teach more people the importance of pinpointing problems early. One of her goals is to introduce a 20-week ÂRate Your Mate Before ItÂs Too LateÂ seminar for Florida students that is based on her book. Helping young people evaluate potential partners is crucial to creating stable, fulfilling marriages, Cohan says.
ÂMy dream is that every child in the United States has an opportunity to learn the ABCs of relationships,Â she says. ÂWeÂve got to get to the root of the problem, and the root of the problem can only be eradicated through education.Â
Throughout her 30-year career, Cohan has worked with patients from a variety of socio-economic backgrounds. Despite their differences, nearly all need guidance on choosing the right lifelong companion, she says. BushÂs appointment enables Cohan to highlight the need for a proactive approach in educating people about healthy relationships.
After serving on FloridaÂs Family Transition Team for a year and a half, Cohan says she is delighted to have the opportunity to work with members of the Commission on Marriage and Family Support Initiatives.
