7 Conversations Weekend Marriage Workshop

Our Center is excited to sponsor and recommend this 2 1/2 day intensive marital experience for our couples! Seven Conversations to Enrich your Marriage is a rare opportunity for couples to take a few days to invest in their marriage. Couples will learn about and apply some of the most recent state-of-the-art techniques that are based on Emotionally-Focused Therapy developed by Sue Johnson and her colleagues. These strategies help couples strengthen their relationship, substantially repair any marital injuries (which can be anything from just feeling emotionally disconnected from each other to getting past a severe marital betrayal) and learn how to sustain these improvements long-term. 

7 Hours of Instruction
During the intensive weekend, couples will get a full seven hours of very effective and insightful teaching from two highly qualified therapists. They will cover key marital dynamics such as identifying disconnecting patterns in their relationship, learning how to talk about the ‘raw spots’ every relationship develops, learning how to safely talk about a particularly difficult moment or dynamic in the relationship, and learning how to safely and substantially repair their relationship toward becoming the secure, grace giving relationship it is designed to be.

7 Hours of Personal Counseling
Each couple will also get seven hours of marital counseling with their own personal marriage counselor who will help customize and personalize application of these principles to their marriage. 7 hours of marriage counseling would be $700.00.

We're really excited that our new staff counselor Mariam Coaster and her good friend Lindsey Castleman are offering this through our Counseling Center. This represents one of the ongoing initiatives of our Center for enhancing relationships by applying the truths of the gospel with current psychological science.
