Attending a couples weekend workshop can be a worthwhile investment in your relationship, but selecting the right workshop can be a daunting task.

I conducted an extensive research into couples workshops and retreats. As a disclaimer, I am a certified Gottman Institute Therapist who offers The Art and Science of Love Couples Workshop.

However, there are some general guidelines for anyone searching for a high-quality couples workshop or retreat, some of which are:

  • Privacy
  • Research-backed Methods
  • Recognition of a Higher Power
  • Opportunity to Practice Skills
  • Passion and Experience
  • Take-home Materials

Privacy

Privacy will allow you to get to the heart of matters with your partner.

Couples should expect privacy and a certain level of anonymity. Workshops do not require (and should not encourage) couples to make public disclosures about sensitive matters involving their relationships.

Research-backed Methods

Evidence-based relationship methods offer the best chance for couples to learn meaningful skills and implement them, knowing that more than chance, timing or charisma is behind positive changes.

slide6

Recognition of a Higher Power

While relying on solid data, instructors should also recognize that for many people, a higher power exists which can facilitate healing and change.

Behavioral changes acquired at a workshop may lack the depth needed for sustainable change without a deeper purpose of meaning assigned to those changes.

slide7

Opportunity to Practice Skills

A sound workshop will give couples plenty of time to practice the skills they learn, and reach out to the instructor for assistance at any point.

The instructor-to-couples ratio should be kept to about 10-to-1 or less.

Passion and ExperienceAn experienced and licensed marriage counselor, whose practice focuses on couples, is your best bet for capable assistance in navigating the complexities of relationships.

If you attend a workshop with a less experienced instructor, make sure a seasoned therapist will also be on-hand as a co-presenter.

Take-home Materials

A high-quality workshop will provide you with materials and workbooks to take home, giving you the tools to continue to strengthen your relationship.

Attending a couples weekend workshop is a worthwhile investment in your relationship at any stage. Besides gaining new information and skills, remember that such a retreat is an opportunity for re-connection, healing and romance with your partner in a space and time carved out just to focus on each other.
