KNOW YOUR PARTNER:
The Road to a Secure-Functioning Relationship

November 21 – December 19, 2020

We have gone virtual. In response to COVID-19, we have redesigned our signature couples workshop Know Your Partner: The Road to a Secure-Functioning Relationship to an online format.

Many of us have spent more time together than we have been used to since COVID has upended our lives. This has been a pleasant experience for some, but not so easy for others. It has been especially challenging for couples with families to take care of and more responsibilities to manage.

Creating a feeling of safety and security in our couple bubbles is more important now than ever. If you need guidance in knowing how to practise kinder couple self-care, we have the answer for you. You can participate in our online couples workshop from the comfort of our own home.

What Will You Learn at this Virtual Couples Workshop?

In this 5-week online workshop you will explore and identify your patterns of behaviour. You will gain some fundamentals about biology and the human brain. And you’ll begin to understand how you and your partner are wired.

What will that mean for you as a team? Imagine being able to maintain closeness and intimacy, even when you are disagreeing or feeling misunderstood.

Here’s how you will benefit from the time you invest in this workshop. We will guide you weekly as you:

  • identify the purpose and principles of your relationship
  • learn how your attachment styles impact your everyday interactions
  • experience tender moments face-to-face as a couple (in private)
  • practise real-time skill-building and benefit from facilitator feedback
  • know what makes each of you feel more safe and secure as a couple
By the end of our 5 weekly Zoom get-togethers, you will have gained new tools and deeper understandings to help keep your love alive. You’ll have some new ideas about what it takes to create a safe, secure, and lasting relationship. And you will be able to talk more intimately and comfortably as a couple, and will leave more emotionally connected.

What Else Can You Expect from this Workshop?

In the words of Stan Tatkin, Ph.D., author of Wired for Love and Wired for Dating, and upon whose work we drew in the creation of this workshop: “There is nothing more difficult to deal with than another person… As individuals, we are complex. We don’t come with manuals to help our partners understand us.”

In this couples workshop, we will help you create a “working manual” as you start to know your partner better. You will learn:

  • how your attachment and communication styles impact your relationship
  • to read each other better
  • how you trigger each other
  • understand what a secure functioning relationship looks like
  • learn what is safe and what is threatening to each other

How is this Couples Workshop Presented?

We will have a balance of facilitator and video presentations, and one-to-one exercises that will focus on just the two of you. During the workshop, you will complete all the couple activities together with your partner in your own private Zoom room, and afterward you will be invited to share with the other participants what you have learned. (Disclosure is always optional.) A live Q&A will follow.

Please Note: This workshop is educational in nature. It is designed to present information in a practical and informative way. A workshop does not take the place of couples therapy. Please contact us if you feel you need a more private, one on-one therapeutic experience.
