Revitalize your relationship, build stronger connections, and meet future challenges together with this unique group. All couples welcome.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Led by Dr. Janine Cutler, C. Psych and Shankari Sharma, M.A., this group will introduce couples to a blend of evidence-based approaches, including the Gottman Method and Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT).
Over the course of the group sessions, couples will explore what healthy relationships look like, difficulties that may arise, and what the recipe is for a thriving, romantic relationship.
During Keeping the Romance Alive, couples will learn how to incorporate the following strategies into their lives together:
CONNECTION ENHANCEMENT STRATEGIES:
These strategies cover how to enhance the love, affection, admiration and connection that is already present in your relationship. You will learn healthy communication and negotiation styles, how to set appropriate boundaries, and how to build strategies to effectively meet each other’s needs.
CONFLICT MANAGEMENT STRATEGIES:
These strategies help couples understand the different types of difficulties they might encounter, and how to resolve them successfully.
SHARED MEANING STRATEGIES:
These strategies enable couples to create their own rituals, roles, goals, and symbols that will help to honour each other’s individuality while also creating a shared meaning for their lives.
Couples will be provided a workbook with a variety of exercises and resources.
Total cost for each couple would be $2,400.00 for the 12 sessions. Total fee for group is requested upon registration. Therapy is eligible for reimbursement with most major Canadian benefits plans. Couples will receive receipts at the end of each session.
