Couples in our society are very isolated from other couples and from "what is normal" in a relationship. Couples workshops provide a unique opportunity to de-mystify relationship stress and change destructive cycles quickly. Attendees will have an opportunity to experience effective exercises used in couple's workshops.

Educational Objectives:

  1. To describe how to develop an outline for a couples workshop.
  2. To describe a graduated series of exercises designed to create a positive interpersonal dialogue between high distress partners.
