This workshop is designed for all couples in a committed relationship.  If you have a strong relationship, this workshop will provide you with insights and tools to foster further closeness, friendship, and trust. If your relationship is distressed, this two-day workshop will provide you with a greater understanding of your relationship and a road map for repair. No public discussion or disclosure is involved.

At the workshop, you’ll learn how to: foster respect, affection, and closeness; build and share a deeper connection with each other; keep conflict discussions calm, break through and resolve conflict gridlock; and strengthen and maintain the gains in your relationship.

During the workshop you will:

  • Understand the science of adult attachment and how your attachment style impacts your relationship
  • Identify your negative cycle, which all couples have in some shape or form, that creates disconnection
  • Find your emotional raw spots and explore how those sensitivities relate to your family of origin and past relationships
  • Learn how to reinforce healthy cycles and deeper levels of emotional connection
  • Communicate deeper emotional longings and needs for security and connection
