This is a course for couples (of any kind) who are committed to growth within their relationship.  Intimate relationships have the potential to facilitate personal growth in a way that allows us to explore our monkey business.   It will shine a light on typical relationship patterns that get couples into trouble.  The combination of the LIFE material and research from leaders in the field,  provides a wide range of insights to apply to our everyday lives.

Of course, no couple’s course is complete without communication skill building.  Yet, communication goes beyond skills because how you speak represents who you are.  Knowing this means that you can use language as a vehicle for growth.  Participants will work within their couple relationship while Allison presents to the group as a whole.

What to expect from the 8 week workshops

LIFE Seminars offers two distinctly different 8-week workshops to help teach the skills necessary to develop healthy family relationships. Each educational workshop consists of a series of lectures and breakout group discussions.
