What will the workshop be like?
The two-hour class is loosely structured like this:
- 15 minutes for questions about the course, the homework and ongoing struggles in partnership
- 30-40 minutes of instructional couples education
- One hour of work with your partner exclusively practicing the skills for that month
- 15 minutes of closing discussion on the skills we practiced, as well as reviewing homework assignment
What you can expect from each session:
Couples can expect to be in a comfortable and relaxed classroom environment. Primarily the work is done between partners. This is time you have each devoted to talk and share with one another. Many couples call it “date night.” Group discussion is voluntary and is a great opportunity to listen, gain knowledge and support from others. You can expect to leave each session with healthier skills and confidence in managing your relationship. Couples are assigned homework to work on between sessions.
This workshop really helped my partner and I understand why we were having the difficulties we were having and helped us create a language to talk about them in a more effective manner. It also helped normalize what we were going through and helped us see that we were encountering obstacles that could be overcome. Most importantly, it helped us understand what kinds of things could help us overcome the struggles.
