To: billcoffin68@gmail.com


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

What is one thing you can do to improve your marriage

We know that life can be hard sometimes and that it can take a toll on your relationship - but can positivity play a role in your marriage? 

What is your attitude towards your marriage?


Imagine this: It's a Tuesday morning; you forgot to set your alarm last night. You wake up half an hour late and no longer have time to shower before work. Scrambling to get in on time, you forget to grab an orange - which you have every morning for breakfast. Once you get into work, ten minutes late, you find you are scheduled for a morning meeting ... again. Bewildered by the audacity of your supervisor, you reluctantly accept the scheduled meeting on your computer and start to prepare for it.

Ten thirty rolls around and you walk into the meeting. Everyone is laughing, smiling, having a general good time and you roll your eyes to yourself - it's a Tuesday, why is everyone so cheerful. Twenty minutes into the painfully "fun" meeting you sputter out a chuckle.

What. Where did that come from?

It's almost as if your coworkers' positivity had an impact on your mood.

Believe it or not, the people you spend your time with can affect your attitude towards your day, your week, and even your life in general. When you have a positive outlook, it can help your mood which has been shown to affect your health. Here are some things that a positive outlook can do to affect your life:
  • There's more laughter
  • A valuable source of motivation
  • Attracts other happy people
  • Reduces stress
  • Lowers risk for heart-related health problems
If we know that a positive outlook affects your mood and your health - what if we think about it in terms of your relationship? If you have a poor attitude at work, school, or in general about your life you may be projecting that attitude onto your marriage without knowing it. If you know having a positive outlook on life can lower your health risks, think about what having a positive outlook on your relationship could do for your marriage's health.


Take some time each day to remember the good in your relationship, even when you're running late because your spouse couldn't figure out which tie to wear, or bitter that you missed the bus because your partner was having a bad hair day, or stressed that your partner forgot to pick up more milk for the recipe you are making tonight.  What is your marriage attitude?  A little grace, empathy, and thankfulness might give you the boost you need.  Healthy, happy couples have healthy, happy relationships.

And lastly, remember to smile, it actually won't kill ya!

Did you check out our blog series last month?  We interviewed four couples from the PREPARE/ENRICH family to see their insights on marriage.  It's worth a read!

 
This is part one of a mini interview series the team at PREPARE/ENRICH conducted during the month of May to celebrate anniversaries with couples like you.

Research Shows Importance of “Success Sequence”

June 23, 2017

New report on millennials and avoiding poverty

Steven Wagner, ACF Acting Assistant Secretary for Children and Families

painted image of the back of a man and a woman standing in a field 

ACF’s programs are designed to help low-income families, while promoting the healthiest and best choices for Americans to succeed in life. Our Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program, for instance, has specific purposes in its statute, including promoting job preparation, work and marriage; preventing out-of-wedlock pregnancies; and encouraging two-parent married families.

new report shows how crucial the “success sequence” is for young adults to avoid poverty. Authored by Brad Wilcox and Wendy Wang of the American Enterprise Institute and the Institute for Family Studies, it states: “Millennials are much more likely to flourish financially if they follow the ‘success sequence’—getting at least a high school degree, working full-time, and marrying before having any children, in that order.”

The statistics are worth looking at. The report shows, for instance, “95 percent of millennials who married first are not poor, compared to 72 percent who had children first.” Additionally, “71 percent who married before having children made it into the middle or higher end of the income distribution by the time they are age 28-34. By comparison, only 41 percent of millennials from lower-income families who had children first made it into the middle or higher end of the distribution when they reached ages 28-34.”

ACF’s programs offer tools to support healthy decisions. Our abstinence education programs – block grants to states, and funding for local grantees – aim to deliver promising approaches to reducing out-of-wedlock pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections. And our healthy marriage program offers a range of activities, including premarital education and marriage skills training.

Sometimes individuals, particularly young people, who experience poverty and material or emotional need lose hope that they will ever be able to realize their personal goals in life. The Wilcox-Wang research should give them hope. By choosing to achieve these life goals in their proper order, millennials in this research were virtually certain (97 percent) to have avoided poverty, with a mere three percent of those following this path in poverty. The success sequence should be a model on how to achieve good results.

What Science Can Tell Us About Family Fun

NCFR member Karen K. Melton, Ph.D., CTRS recently appeared on the Talk of Iowa discussing the topic of family vacations with the show's hosts and callers. Listen to an online recording here.

This got us thinking back to last summer's issue of CFLE Network on the topic of Family Fun. For a limited time, we've unlocked several of the issue's articles to the general public (normally only available for Certified Family Life Educators). 

A common theme in these articles is that leisure time is often healthiest for the family when spent at home doing daily activities (Zabriskie & McCormick, 2001). However, there are also many great benefits to family vacations and activities outside the home, which you can learn about in this issue's articles below:

NCFR WEBINAR:
Practical Skills for Family Life Educators to
Invoke, Evoke, and Provoke Cultural Engagement

Thursday, July 20, 2017  | 11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. CST
Approved for 1.5 CFLE contact hours of continuing education credit.


This NCFR webinar is for family life educators interested in cultural engagement. Presenter Marcy L. Peake, MA, LPC, NCC, CFLE, will help you build awareness of your cultural self and take away activities to help provoke cultural engagement with the families you serve.

Family life educators work in a variety of environments that require knowledge, skills, and dispositions to engage diverse populations and create learning spaces that are anti-oppressive for all families. Since families are unique both within and between cultural groups, family life educators can best prepare by learning practical skills that invoke an understanding of their own cultural selves, evoke awareness of societal and individual biases, and provoke cultural engagement with families served. 

“This is an invaluable resource for teaching family life methodology. It will help students gain more awareness of themselves and the potential families with which they’ll work.”
- Jennifer Crosswhite, Ph.D., CFLE, NCFR Director of Research and Policy Education

This Week on Family-Studies


The Institute for Family Studies and AEI released a new report by Wendy Wang and W. Bradford Wilcox, The Millennial Success Sequence: Marriage, Kids, and the "Success Sequence" among Young Adults

Alysse ElHage summarized the report's findings on the link between married parenthood and Millennials' financial well-being. She also interviewed journalist Regina R. Robertson about her new book, He Never Came Home. Amy Zeittlow and Naomi Cahn shared insights from their research on stepfathers, and Nora Sullivan discussed a recent study on how ambitious young women deal with the "trade-off" of career and marriage.
 

Marriage and Millennial Success

by Alysse ElHage

Millennials who put marriage before parenthood are more likely to be on track to the American Dream, according to a new IFS/AEI report. Getting married before having a first child reduces their odds of being in poverty by 60%.

Daughters, Father Loss, & Longing

an Interview with Regina R. Robertson

"Many women had such vivid memories of their fathers, from the smell of his cologne to his being he the world’s best tickler. It was amazing to hear about how much they loved their dads and all of the beautiful reasons why."

Prioritizing Family Over Career  

by Nora Sullivan

In a recent study, 68% of single female students placed in an all-female group said they'd prefer a higher-paying job with more hours to a lower salary job with fewer hours. But in a mixed group, only 42% chose the higher-earning job. 

Honoring Stepfathers

by Amy Zeittlow & Naomi Cahn

Today, more than 40% of Americans have at least one step-relative in their family. A stepfather faces unique challenges, so he needs to make extra effort to create a positive relationship.

IFS Around the Web

This week, AEI hosted a panel discussion of our new report, The Millennial Success Sequence. Also, Wendy Wang and W. Bradford Wilcox joined Ian Rowe of Public Prep Network to discuss the report on a Banter podcast. The report was also highlighted by Robert VerBruggen in National Review.

Dads, Kids, and Baseball

by Kevin E. Stuart


A recent study finds a connection between father-presence and baseball: Kids are about 25% more likely to play baseball or softball when they live with their dad. [From the Archives]

Subway library train

Posted: 12 Jun 2017 12:46 AM PDT

For the next six weeks, any member of the public in New York can head to subwaylibrary.com or download the New York Public Library's reader app, SimplyE, to have unlimited access to a wide selection of NYPL-provided e-books. The initiative also aims to promote the free Wi-Fi service at each of the subway's underground stations, which rolled out late last year. When users log onto the service, a link to the Subway Library website will appear, encouraging you to read a book instead of your Facebook feed.

Library Train is designed to look like the iconic Rose Reading Room with the seats and walls on each car made to resemble bookshelves (and a faux–Gilded Age ceiling to boot). The train is scheduled to run on the E and F lines between Brooklyn, Manhattan and Queens.

When was your last date?
Perhaps there was a time in your relationship when dating came easily. The ideas flowed, blocking out time was almost effortless, anticipation kept you awake at night, and the days before a scheduled date seemed to pass by slowly. Now... 5, 10, 15+ years into your relationship, perhaps dating feels stale, laborious, and maybe even non-existent.
 
Inject some new energy into dating your loved one!
 
1. Take off the pressure. Dates don't have to be time consuming, expensive, and momentous. It's about spending intentional time with your partner.
 
2.   Recalibrate your expectations. Likely you've changed and your partner has changed. What does your relationship need now? Consider activities that will enable you to discover each other again, have fun and laugh, relax, or just be together.
 
3. Try something new with your partner.   Here are 52 ideas, one for each week of the year.

Counseling seems scary. But here's a secret that could protect your future marriage- it's not scary!
