I lead workshops in various aspects of couple, parenting and family relationships. Some of the recent workshops have included:
The PREP Program (Prevention and Relationship Enhancement Program): This is a 12 hour workshop for couples who are married or engaged. It deals with communication and other relationship skills and can benefit anyone in a long term relationship or considering one. It is usually held over 2 full days (10 to 5) or can be shortened to one and a half day or one full day. I am a certified PREP workshop leader.
7 Habits of Highly Effective Families: Based on the best selling book by Steven Covey. A full day workshop, which can be shortened to one half day or 2.5 hours. I trained to lead this workshop with its creators, the Coveys. It deals with how to create a beautiful family culture in this turbulent world. I am certified by Franklin Covey to lead their family and teen curriculum.

“Too much of a Good Thing” - Raising Children of Character in an Age of Indulgence: This is a full day workshop but I have also presented it in a two-three hour format although that doesn’t give too much time for exercises and practice.
