Cultivating a Thriving Relationship Group
The purpose of the Cultivating a Thriving Relationship group is to dedicate a time and space for couples to work on their relationship. Much like fostering an athletic or work skill, there are times where a relationship coach can help people work smarter and more effectively. Couples will learn core features of healthy relationships. Each week, couples will walk away with concrete skills and will be able to address the most common problem areas in relationships.
· Keys for a healthy relationship
· Cultivating virtues in relationships
· Risk factors for relationship problems and how to overcome them
· Building healthy communication
· Managing emotions in relationships
· Sleep, money, sex, parenting, and other common problem areas
What are the logistics?
WHEN? The group will run for 8 weeks starting in Mid-September and will meet once a week on weekday evenings.
WHO? The group is designed to be helpful for all couples. At the group, there are typically couples that have been married 40+ years, partners currently raising kids, and engaged couples. We find that the mix of couples at different stages is a great benefit. This group is specifically made to be accessible to couples at a variety of places in their relationships. Whether things are going well and you just want to fine-tune or you are in a rut, this group is for you. Note: We do ask that all couples are at a place where they can constructively engage in the group. Each group is capped at 6 couples, to ensure a personal touch.
WHAT ELSE? All materials will be provided.
COST? $40/couple/session or $25/person/session.
If cost is an issue, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org about scholarships that may be available.
