(Times Photo by Billy Upshaw) Workshop to Dramatize Couple Communication Had a fight with your wife or husband lately? How did it start? Dr. Douglas Greve, director of the Shreveport Mental Health Center, and clinical assistant professor of psychiatry at LSU Medical School at Shreveport, says many times the fight starts "not over what the person said, but the tone of voice they used." This and other non-verbal forms of communication will be demonstrated in a "Communi-cation and Marriage Workshop" which will be sponsored by the Health Center for ministers and lawyers. It will be held Thurs-day from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. "We are trying to demon-strate different ways a couple relates to each other and from recognizing these ways, we can predict whether the problem can be worked out, or whether it is minor or they need real serious help," said Dr. Greve. The main .topic will deal with "what communication is and how couples communicate." "Most peop1e," he ex-plained," think we communi-cate with words, but in an i n t i m a t e relationship, most communication is nonverbal— the tone of voice, facial expres-sion and the gesture." "By using a tape or closed circuit television, we can show that the argument started over the tone of voice," he added. He said the workshop is intended to make the partici-pants more aware of how couples relate, pointing out that "if one individual is independ-ent and the other very depend ent, thev have to maintain a balance." Role playing, discussions and quesions and answers will be used in the meeting. Dr. Greve will serve as the workshop leader, and will give a short talk at the beginning of the session. Members of his staff will," through role playing, demon-strate different types of com-munication, "including the 'gru-some twosome'—the couples who can't live together and can't live apart." The group will divide into small groups later in the afternoon and will meet in a general session for a question and answer period. Group leaders will be the Rev. Joe Robbins. assistant pastor of St. Mark's Episcopal Church; the Rev. John Winn. pastor of Cedar Grove Method-ist Church: Dr. Jay Pennington psychiatrist; Neil Gordon, so cial worker; Dr. Joe Ben Hayes, resident in psychiatrist at Confederate Memorial Medi-cal Center; Dr. Marylin Stew-art, resident in psychiatry at Confederate; the Rev. Bill McCutcheon, assistant pastor at First Methodist Church; Gail Gucker, psychologist; Beverly Stuckly, social worker, and Dr. Ann Eagle, physician.
