We *love* this course and the instructor, Stephen Baars! We were first intrigued by the unique approach that differed from traditional marriage/couples therapy. My partner appreciated that it took a lighthearted/comedic approach instead of very serious counseling where someone might be singled out. Additionally, it is a class format, so no one has to talk! It's actually entertaining because funny clips are incorporated into the material. We are always amazed how the lessons take everything you have ever learned (or heard) and turn it on its head. The approach we take with our kids and our partners/spouses should often be reversed! While some couples can glide through life effortlessly, we are part of the group that needs assistance. We decided to make a commitment to going to save our relationship and learn the tools to allow us to have a loving and stable relationship. And little by little I feel like we are getting there. Even with the cost of a babysitter, the price of the course (which you can repeat as much as you want for free) can't be beat, so there is little to lose by trying it. And you can attend classes whenever your schedule permits (Thursday nights for us in Rockville) because there is no set order. All in all, it has been a revelation for us, and we really enjoy going. We come out of every session with renewed hope that we are getting closer to having the relationship we want despite all of our differences and issues. We are even willing to travel from Capitol Hill to Rockville in rush hour to attend. :-) We plan to keep going back until the message becomes second nature. Give it a try -- you have nothing to lose!
