A loving relationship can be one of the most rewarding experiences in life. Early on, people tend to focus most of their energy and attention on their partner and the relationshiplaughter and compromise come easy, and the relationship may seem effortless. However, as people move through life with a partner, many difficulties will arise to challenge that harmony. This seminar will focus on strategies to help participants build and maintain mutually satisfying relationships, even when times get tough. 

Participants will learn to:

  • Recognize common relationship challenges
  • Apply the methods to improve communication and resolve conflict
