Of all the adventures you can undertake in your life, none will be as important or have as much impact as the choice to live as a couple: for example, numerous studies have found a strong correlation between health and marital satisfaction, between marital satisfaction and longevity, marital satisfaction, and also between long-standing discord in the couple's relationship and some mental illnesses such as depression and anxiety.
Even so, very little attention is paid to preparation for marriage and life as a couple, it seems to be a general belief that the skills necessary to establish a functional and satisfactory relationship are self-learned. Perhaps for this reason, so many couples end up in separation and divorce.
We know that the skills required to successfully experience this adventure can—and should—be learned.
Whether you are just starting a relationship or have been living together for years, you can learn tools derived from years of research that will make your relationship more intimate and more satisfying.
Our specialized psychologists and therapists have many resources to help couples improve their relationship.
- Through the Art and Science of Loving workshops, for those couples who feel strong in their relationship, but want to learn skills to prevent and maintain well-being.
- By conducting a relationship assessment and diagnosis and providing advice on the best course of action, even if couples are not yet considering therapy.
- Through the beginning of a therapeutic process for those couples who are going through a difficult time and need assistance, either due to a crisis or some specific problem that they are unable to solve.
We believe that we can all have a strong and fulfilling relationship if we are willing to work at it.
