Sari firmly believes that the contemporary Jordanian family is currently undergoing significant social, cultural, and economic transformations, which impose considerable stress on its members. Consequently, urgent intervention is required from consultants, experts, and counselors, to effectively address these challenges. Sari emphasizes the importance of counseling at every stage of family development, including the premarital, marital, and divorce phases. Each stage
possesses its unique characteristics and issues that counselors must be knowledgeable about and adept at handling.
Given the escalating rates of divorce in Jordanian society and the difficulties faced by divorced women and their children, Sari places special emphasis on the divorce stage.
He calls upon consultants, counselors, and experts to exert their utmost efforts in facilitating safe and peaceful divorces. Sari advocates for comprehensive support during this critical phase to ensure the well-being of all parties involved.
