Marriage Intensives

What Is A Marriage Intensive?

  • One-on-one with therapist for 1, 2, or 3 days
  • Research supports that “front-end-loading” therapy, or spending a significant amount of time learning and applying relational skills at the start of the therapeutic experience, proves most effective.
  • Devotes the necessary, concentrated time away from everyday distractions
  • Curriculum draws from current, leading relationship research and clinical studies that align with biblical truths. Therapist tailors material to meet couple’s specific needs
  • Couples learn what is involved in marital success, predictors of divorce, ways to prevent it, key relational concepts, and practical, easy-to-use exercises that provide focused and individualized help which can revitalize even the most stressed and wounded couples
