BreakThrough Workshop – Aug 10, Pennant Hills, Sydney

>Identify your conflict triggers.

>Learn strategies to de-escalate an argument.

>Understand what the real issues are.

>Find constructive ways to re-establish connection.

All couples go through periods where their relationship is strained. Stress, sleep-deprivation, demands from family and work can starve your marriage of the positive energy it needs and deserves. Soon, you find yourselves arguing more often, making up with less enthusiasm and becoming someone even you yourself don’t like.

If this sounds like you, or someone you love, it’s time to do something about it!

The SmartLoving BreakThrough Workshop is a practical, solution-focussed event for all stages of marriage. Drawing on contemporary research and Catholic theology, this workshop will arm you with skills and insights to transform your relationship into the thriving, joy-filled encounter that it is meant to be.

Who should attend?

  • Husbands and wives with or without their spouse in stressed marriages,
  • Couples in stable marriages that are experiencing a measure of disconnection
  • Those who work with or support couples (clergy, marriage educators, counsellors, life coaches, spiritual directors etc) are very welcome.

Cost: Donation

Afternoon tea and print materials provided.

Please note:
there is NO couple or group work in this workshop.
All activities are individually based and your privacy and confidentiality is strictly respected.
