Couples everywhere are seeking help to have healthier relationships. Truth is, that help can come not just from therapists or counselors but often, more effectively, people very similar to the couples. Other couples who have a desire to help others and willing to be trained can do much to educate, inspire and motivate other couples. FROM COUPLE TO COUPLE IS a proven mentor couple training course for couples who have been married at least 7-8 years in a fairly healthy marriage.
They are trained to work with other couples before and during marriage. Upon completion participants are certified and given assistance to begin their service of strengthening families. Topics covered include: communication, resolving conflict, win-win problem solving, financial management, values clarification, creating a mission statement, parenting, and tips for working with a variety of couples. Includes coaching, role plays, inventories, many interactive exercises, and support services after training. This 3 day course can be provided on 3 consecutive Saturdays or a Saturday each month.
