This virtual workshop is designed to support couples, and can apply to any stage in a relationship.
Throughout our six weeks, we'll explore how different parts of our brain work, how our brains impact our experience in relationships, and how to set our relationships up for success with the brains we have.
Session 1: introduction to brain organization, relationship principles, and benefits of secure functioning partnership
Session 2: principles 1 & 10 - we prioritize each other and our connection
Session 3: principles 2 & 9 - we protect the relationship and make each other feel good
Session 4: principles 3 & 8 - our relationship is just and we are experts in each other
Session 5: principles 4 & 7 - we minimize each other's stress
Session 6: principles 5 & 6 - we are transparent, and repair quickly and well
Jess Cleeves, MAT LCSW, is the workshop facilitator.
Can't make it for the entire time? No worries, sessions will be recorded, and the recordings will be available for 30 days after the session ends.
This virtual workshop will be a combination of direct instruction and participant activities (you'll do activities with your own partner, but won't interact with other couples through activities).
While each day will vary slightly, here's a general agenda:
Opening activity - 5 mins: micro-skill to strengthen your relationship
Direct instruction - 25 mins
Activity - 15 mins (couples engage in activity together in their own space, while muted)
Q&A - 15 mins
By workshop's end, each participating couple will leave with:
A brain organization model to help you understand your partner's behavior under stress
10 personalized relationship principles to guide the relationship moving forward
6 micro-skills to support effective day-to-day interactions
