People turn to friends and family long before they go to a couples therapist. Marital First Responders is a new training program for people who are natural confidants on relationship problems: people turn to them for support and perspective. Learn what the training involves, tune your skills in being a confidant in your own social world, and see if you’d like to teach this course in your community.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Discuss key skills that confidants can learn to be more confident and effective
  2. Identify the prevalence of confidants about marriage and relationship problems.

*Sessions may be edited for content and to preserve confidentiality*
