Q- I feel reluctant to attend a group workshop – will we be forced to share or expose anything in front of other participants?
A- No. You are welcome to raise your hand and ask questions or offer up your own examples– if you choose to. But you are not put on the spot or otherwise asked to participate. You will learn new exercises to practice together, and those are done just between the two of you.
Q- What is the structure or format of the workshop?
A- It is a combination of teaching, videos, and several exercises for you and your partner to practice together the concepts that you are learning.
Q- Are same-sex couples welcome?
Q- Are couples who attend engaged, dating or married?
A- All of the above! The principles that this workshop teaches are applicable to you whether you are just dating, or have been married for 50 years.
Q- What is included in the price?
A- The price of the workshop includes admission for 2, a workbook for each, beverages and snacks, resources and referrals, one-one coaching during the exercises (optional), follow up emails, and a subscription to our monthly newsletter.
Q- What if my partner or I am still feeling reluctant to attend?
A- Feel free to call Michelle to discuss how this workshop can be of help to you. And — this workshop comes with a special guarantee: If you attend and, for any reason, you believe the insights and skills cannot help your relationship, you may request a courteous and complete refund of the workshop.
Some kind words from past attendees:
” As a result of attending your Couples Communication Workshop, we have made significant progress that had not been achieved using any other resource. We are still applying the tools we learned even after the workshop is over, and continue to have successes. Your class had a strong, positive effect on our marriage, thank you!”
“My husband and I found the Couples Communication Workshop to be terrific. Michelle is a great teacher and made us both feel very comfortable – it was wonderful to know that none of the couples would be asked to process or practice the exercises in front of the group. We not only felt good about the issue we processed and negotiated at the workshop, but also had an extremely wonderful outcome when we applied what we learned at home. Take the workshop! Even with a reluctant partner, we both got very much out of the day.”
“As a result of attending the Couples Communication Workshop, we learned a lot about conflict resolution, and truly understanding each other. We left the workshop with a positive view and outlook on our relationship. Absolutely take the workshop! It is worth your time.”
