Through the videos, activities and exercises provided in the course, you will learn how to develop qualities and life skills commonly found in couples who have created exemplary relationships.
The intention here is not only to inform you, the student, but also to engage your interest and involve you as an active agent in the learning process. Since the course isn't simply didactic but is also experiential it is necessary for you to understand that what will be required is more than simply to listen, take notes, and receive the information that is given.
The course will hopefully provoke and evoke feelings, opinions, concerns, and experiences that are not only generic and general to most people but also those that are specific and personal to each individual student. This course will also inform you of the potential benefits and rewards of creating relationships that are mutually fulfilling and growth-producing.
A heightened awareness of these benefits will serve to inspire and motivate you to be more engaged and interactive with the course content and in so doing to create greater value and a deeper understanding of the material.
