Session Topics – Term 1 2017

31 January – What is this thing called love?

Ah, love: is it all hearts and flowers and happily-ever-afters? Or is that just a fairy tale? This session explores the idea of what a relationship means, the stages most relationships naturally go through over time and how the myth of romantic love influences our hopes and expectations of an intimate partner.

7 February – Building Relationships from the foundation up

Just like a house, a committed relationship needs a firm foundation if it is to truly endure in the long-term. This session explores Dr John Gottman’s concept of the Sound Relationship House, offering many useful ideas for building strong connections with your partner to help your relationship stand the test of time.
14 February – Communication Skills

Do you sometimes struggle to find the right words to help your partner better understand your feelings? In this session you will learn simple yet effective ways of communicating with your partner
while still maintaining an understanding of where they are coming from. This session will explain the importance of using “I” statements and will explore the Imago Dialogue process, a communication method that can help bring you into compassionate and empathetic connection with your partner.

21 February – Relationship Roadblocks (4 Horsemen)

Relationships researcher Dr John Gottman has identified four of the biggest factors that contribute to relationship breakdown: Criticism, Defensiveness, Stonewalling and Contempt. This session examines each of these Relationship Roadblocks in detail and provides practical strategies for identifying and avoiding them.

28 February – Understanding and Handling Strong Emotions

One of the most difficult communication tasks is keeping our cool when deep feelings start to flare up. This session looks at recognising the emotional ‘baggage’ that we bring into our relationships, the primary emotions that underlie our patterns of reactive thinking and behaviour, and some simple techniques to help you stay calm when we’re under pressure.
