Start Right, Stay Connected!

Start Right, Stay Connected; A Premarital Workshop

If you are engaged to be married or you are preparing to make a long-term commitment, or are in the early stages of your marriage this workshop is for you! It is designed to help you and your partner learn the necessary tools for developing a successful long-term relationship. This powerful one day educational workshop is based on Imago Relationship Theory and the work of Harville Hendrix, Ph.D. and Helen LaKelly Hunt, Ph.D. and their book “Getting the Love You Want”.

It is important to strengthen your relationship and prepare constructively for future challenges and conflicts that everyone will inevitably face at some point in their marriage. Just a little effort now, while you have so much fresh positive energy in your relationship, can make your odds a whole lot better over the long run. The research shows that there is a window of opportunity during the year before the wedding and the six months or so after when couples get the optimum benefit from marriage preparation. Later, under stress, negative habits and relationship patterns may become established and be much harder to resolve. You want to do everything you can to ensure that your dreams of a great marriage and a great life are realized.

The goals of this workshop are for you to:

· Learn proven communication skills for a healthy relationship
· Identify relationship stages on your Journey to Real Love
· Learn about tools for dealing with issues in your relationship
· Learn how to remove negativity from your relationship
· Learn how to maintain the romance in your relationship
· Discuss wedding planning guidelines
· Plan your relationship vision
· Learn to affair-proof your relationship
· Review the important conversations to have before saying “I do.”

You can make a good relationship richer, deeper, and stronger as the decades pass. The more conscious and intentional you are at the start of your relationship, the more likely you are to create the relationship of your dreams. True and enduring love is possible.

Workshop Format:

· Short lectures
· Individual reflection and written work
· Live demonstrations of communication skills and processes
· Time to practice new behaviors and skills with your partner in a safe, comfortable and confidential manner.
