Essential of Couples' Communication

October 22nd - November 11th, 2017

Oct 22 - Nov 11 • Sundays at 11am • Classroom C

This four week course will address essential communication strategies including:

● Curiosity

● Listening

● Empathy

● Affirmation

● Validation

● Empathy

We will discuss how married, dating and engaged couples can apply these tools in a manner that helps them strengthen the emotional connection between them, foster a deeper sense of intimacy, heal from prior breaches of trust and effectively navigate the presenting issues betweenthem.

This will be an interactive experience where couples actually get to practice these skill sets, support each other in the process of being vulnerable when communicating, and understand why vulnerability and humility are the antidote to criticism and defensiveness.

We will also study how living out our Christian faith provides the broader framework needed for the development of a strong partnership, and daily challenges us to take serious the notion of “loving our neighbor as ourselves.”

Featured Speaker: Eric Gomez, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, Developer of CLEAVE and Founder of Fulfilled Christian Counseling (www.fulfilledchristiancounseling.com) in Las Cruces, NM.
