How to Improve Your Relationships

This workshop is designed to help you identify and correct the real issues in your relationship – be it with your spouse, partner or neighbor. Participants will examine how personality factors influence relationship dynamics, what triggers conflict, how to successfully resolve differences, and how to be happy in a relationship that sometimes feels less than perfect. Participants will learn better ways to communicate and other behaviorally-specific techniques that lend themselves to relationship satisfaction. Participants who complete this workshop will have increased personal insight, a new skill set and, perhaps more importantly, a new mindset. This is a fast-paced, fun course valuable for both individuals and couples. Lori Hart, Ph.D.; Licensed psychologist

The MBSR program is a highly researched eight-week program developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn at the University of Massachusetts Medical School’s Center for Mindfulness more than 25 years ago. Kabat-Zinn defines mindfulness as “paying attention in a particular way: on purpose, in the present moment and nonjudgmentally, most simply described as the intentional cultivation of nonjudgmental moment-to-moment awareness.” Those who wish to take the course are required to attend this session.

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Program (MBSR) (27 Hrs)

The Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program was developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn at the University of Massachusetts Medical School’s Cen-ter for Mindfulness more than 25 years ago. Since then, this eight-week program has been offered in a variety of international settings. Mindfulness in MBSR can be most simply described as the intentional cultivation of nonjudgmental moment-to-moment awareness” (Kabat-Zinn, 1996). “Three key elements of the definition—intentionality, present-centeredness and absence of judgment—are repeated and reinforced through the MBSR teachers in classes unfolding week by week around the world” (McCown, Reibel, Micozzi, page 64). This course follows the model MBSR 8-week plus a full day of mindfulness. Edie Eileen Elkan, B.A., M.A.
