What's the story on American marriages and families from 2014? Here is a list of just some of the findings. Read More 

Couple Relationship Strengthening and Parenting = Benefits for Children

Governments around the world may soon abandon what could prove to be a powerful tool for stabilizing family life and supporting children. They may be persuaded by critics who have concluded that group support for couples, known more generally as Couple Relationship Education (CRE), is largely a waste of public money that offers few benefits.  Read More

Teens' Brains are Not Fully Wired But Plenty Capable of Self-Control

True or false: Adolescents' brains aren't wired for responsible behavior until they're well into their 20s, so parents and teachers should give them a free pass. False. Read More

Baumgardner: Men Want to be More than Just Breadwinners
Most CEOs know that a satisfied workforce means higher productivity. They also know that it is better and less costly to keep current employees than to deal with such turnover issues as finding new people and training them. However, many employees, both men and women, find themselves conflicted when it comes to the number of hours they spend at work versus family. Read More
Harnessing Dad Power

If you want your children to behave better, improve their performance at school and be more likely to steer clear of drugs and crime, harness dad power.

Studies show that positively involved fathers can have a huge impact on their children in all sorts of ways, and that's why the Fatherhood Institute has launched a new campaign, Bringing Fathers In, to drive home the dad power message to organizations that deal with families, including midwives, health visitors and social services.

Mastering the Mysteries of Love

Weekend Workshops for Couples

The National Institute of Relationship Enhancement® is offering the Mastering the Mysteries of Love version of the Relationship Enhancement® Program for couples in addition to the classic version of the RE Program.

Upcoming dates:

  • February 7-8, 2015 - Mastering the Mysteries of Love, with Rob Scuka, Ph.D.
  • May 2-3, 2015 - Mastering the Mysteries of Love, with Carrie Hansen, LCSW-C
  • July 18-19, 2015 - Mastering the Mysteries of Love, with Carrie Hansen, LCSW-C

All workshops are held in Bethesda, MD.

Cost is $450 per couple.

Further information can be found at www.nire.org.

Research: The RE Program and Mastering the Mysteries of Love is backed by 35 years of empirical research validating its effectiveness. In addition, an award-winning meta-analytic study involving thousands of couples and over a dozen approaches, demonstrated that RE clients showed far more powerful improvement effects than clients in any of the other interventions for couples or families with which it was compared.

Description: Couples spend two days learning 10 practical skills that deepen connection and empower them to resolve current and future problems on their own.

The skills you and your partner learn will help you:

  • establish a constructive, cooperative atmosphere for resolving difficult relationship issues
  • foster increased openness and trust
  • reduce defensiveness, anger and withdrawal
  • express your deepest feelings, concerns and desires openly, honestly and safely
  • nurture deepened caring and compassion
  • increase love and affection
  • create solutions to conflicts at their deepest levels
  • successfully implement agreed-to solutions and behavioral changes

The weekend program usually numbers between 4-10 couples in order to maintain a more intimate atmosphere. It also features significant time for private couples' exercises and dialogues, which part of the time are facilitated by trained coaches.

The program is non-residential and meets on Saturday from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. and on Sunday from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. Information on discounted hotel room rates for those visiting from out of town are available upon registration. Snacks and beverages are provided; participants have lunch on their own.
