Our next Marriage Lab will focus on navigating conflict and is designed to give you the tools you need to navigate the impasses that inevitably occur in marriage. Our presenter will be Anne Kierce, Blackhawk’s Care Coordinator & Director of Weddings. Anne will be using content from Peter and Geri Scazzero’s Emotionally Healthy Skills video series. It would be helpful to come as a couple because we’ll be practicing communication skills. We are unable to offer childcare for this event.

FOR LIFE GROUPS

Blackhawk offers a four-week marriage series called Marriage Matters. It’s designed for Blackhawk life groups made up of married couples. The series touches on topics such as family-of-origin issues, different personalities, and what a culture of mutual submission in marriage might look like. Light homework is required. For more information, contact Steve Rodgers or 608.828.4207.

COUNSELING

It’s a myth that counseling is only for marriages in trouble. Couples in perfectly healthy marriages regularly meet with counselors to be proactive and to sharpen their communication and conflict-resolution skills. If you think your marriage would benefit from seeing a counselor, check out Blackhawk’s Care Resources. Financial assistance is available.

SUGGESTIONS
