Our Process is Simple.  

First, we meet as a group (20 - 25 couples) and your workshop leaders present a topic.  We show movie and TV clips to demonstrate common relationship issues.  We then discuss new tools, based on Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), that you can use to address these issues in your own relationship.  We show videos of couples working with Susan Johnson, the developer of EFT, learning to use the tools to look at their own relationship.  We keep the presentations short, and then we send couples off on their own to have a specific conversation in private that will help them with those issues.  We have therapists standing by who are available to help you at your request.  We then meet up again as a group and those couples who want to share their experience are invited to do so.  Other couples prefer not to share and that is perfectly fine.  After some discussion, we move on to the next relationship topic, and repeat the process.  For a list of topics and daily schedules, 

"It has given my husband and I the tools we needed to save our marriage"

"I feel like we are closer after this experience than we've been in the 36 years we've been married."​
