About this event

August Workshop Theme:

Strengthen Your Friendship Floors Together

Are you a couple who wants to learn to connect in ways that are research based to improve your relationship satisfaction for the long term? 

Being a couple is a blessing, yet even the strongest couples are tested with the normal ups and downs of daily living, especially in modern times. What does the research say about how couples maintain relationship satisfaction? Learn helpful information and engage in fun exercises as a couple, in this online workshop.

  • How to we feel more known with each other?
  • How can we express needs without triggering each other?
  • How can we manage conflict constructively, to stay connected?
  • How can we strengthen our friendship?
  • How do we prioritize each other?

This workshop is dyadic, meaning you and your partner talk WITH each other only!

Couples will learn an exercise, turn off their camera and try it as a couple, then come back on for the next skill. It's education and fun! We do not discuss your couple experience, but couples do find it extremely supportive to "see" other couples in the zoom group, without interacting with them. Maryellen and Thea teach skills and provide information in a group format, while you get to maintain private conversation with each other, from the comfort of your own couch together. Have questions? Contact us!
