Hi Everyone,

NIRE is excited to announce a new addition to the RE family of programs. Couple Talk - Universal Version, created by Don and Alex Flecky, is a video-based communication skills program for all couples. Subtitled as "A Video Version of Dr. Bernard Guerney's Relationship Enhancement® Program," CoupleTalk Universal does not include faith content and is suitable for use in community and federally-funded programs. It provides skills training in communication and conflict resolution using the research-proven RE skills, with their emphasis on empathy. 

CoupleTalk does not require a trained facilitator - video sessions can be accessed on DVDs or by online streaming. The program can be used in classes, as a supplement in counseling, or by a couple at home. It includes a number of distance learning elements to deepen understanding and enhance behavior change. The 10 video sessions are used with accompanying workbooks, and the entire 15 hour program, including four workbooks, can be purchased by a couple for as little as $150. The online community also includes shorter session options for situations where a 90 minute session is too long. 

CoupleTalk Universal will be debuting this month at NARME (National Association of Relationship and Marriage Education) in Denver. For more info and to order, go to www.coupletalk.com
