Frequently Asked Questions About the Workshop
1. We don’t want group therapy. Do we have to share with the other couples?
No. The couples workshop is an educational experience with exercises built into the curriculum to teach you the skills that the “masters” of relationships use. There is no group work and no public disclosure of any kind. The information is presented to you in an interactive lecture format and you will work in a “nest” of just the two of you during the exercises. We provide plenty of room, so you don’t have to worry about the other couples overhearing you. And if you get stuck on an exercise, we will there to help you through the exercise.
2. Must both partners attend or can I come alone?
Since the class involves couples doing exercises together, both partners must participate.
3. My partner isn’t a reader. Can we still come to the class if he/she won’t read the book?
Yes, still come to the class. While the book provides very valuable information, the class lectures will summarize the content of the book. Each person will need a book, however, to do the couple’s exercises efficiently.
4. Should we do the exercises in the book at home or save them for class?
The class will involve doing some of the exercises from the book so doing them first at home would duplicate some of them. In some cases, the directions for doing the exercises in class have been revised and updated from those presented in The Seven Principles book. The educators also role play how to – and how not to – do some of the exercises in order to help
participants get the most out of each exercise. There are some exercises in the book that the class will not have time to do, and couples are encouraged to do them at home after that chapter has been covered in class.
