This couples’ retreat is designed to merge everyday solutions with therapeutic and human behavior sense. The goal is to help each participant gain a clear understanding of who they are, who their partner is and how to be the best partner for each other.
- Once you who have been selected to participate, you and your partner will complete a pre-event questionnaire that helps you to begin setting goals and identifying the issues you want to resolve.
- You and your partner will participate in a 3 day retreat in Palm Beach, FL with four (4) other couples. The retreat will involve work done in the therapeutic setting as well as activities that will take place outside, allowing you the opportunity to begin the reconnecting process and apply the tools and skills you are developing.
- After the retreat you and your partner will participate in weekly follow up conferences for three (3) months to address progress and issues being encountered. Tapering off as is appropriate.
- Following the three month period, you will still have access to follow up, share updates, and get additional assistance as is necessary.
The average couple's participation in this program lasts approximately four (4) to five (5) months, including pre and post retreat work and occasional follow ups after the first 3 months.
One of this program's greatest benefits is that you don't have to wait six months to a year to get and see results as it can sometimes happen in traditional Couples Therapy. Unlike most traditional counseling models, this program is front-loaded. The initial segment includes intense learning, change and growth. The remainder of the time is spent applying your new skills to your relationship. Marriage or relationships for that matter are not unilateral. You don't get to face a single issue per week. That is why having the skills to tackle what you are facing as it is presented is so important. The weekend retreat gets you off to a powerful start and the follow up sessions allow you to address specific issues and work on maintaining the changes that you are making as a couple. By the time you get home from the weekend your relationship is already different.
