I have looked and looked to answer this question. If any one can help me find the answer please help.
Michael is a 40-yer old airline plot who has recently begun to experience chest pains. The chest pains began when Michael signed his final divorce papers, ending his 15-year marriage. He fought for joint custody of his two children, ages 12 and 10, but although he wants to be with them more frequently, he only sees them every two weeks. This schedule is, in great part, a result of his employer's announcement that budget constraints would result in layoffs. Michael worries that without his job he will be unable to support his children and lose the new townhouse that he purchased. Michael's chest pains are becoming more frequent and he fears that he may be dying.
What relationship factors or considerations might be influencing Michael's problem?
Look at the stress factors in Michael's life -- divorce, child custody, lack of time to spend with the kids, possible layoff, financial problems. Any one or two of these issues could cause physical problems -- but all of them together are probably seriously affecting his health.
So these would be the relationship factors that are influencing Michael's problems. I thought it was about his relationship with his wife before they got a divorce.
Relationship factors are much broader than just his difficulties with his wife. He has relationships with his kids, his employer, his mortgage company, and other creditors.
