          Couples need to communicate regularly about the daily maintenance aspects of their lives while also balancing that with the need for romantic communication. Because communication is the means by which relationships are formed, a couple can often achieve greater individual satisfaction with the relationship by becoming more deliberate in the way they communicate with each other. This workshop is designed to provide couples with practical skills and techniques for improving communication that can easily be assimilated into everyday living.

          As a participant, you will learn how to talk about sensitive issues, how to say what you think, feel or want without blaming or attacking and how to get beyond ordinary chitchat and share the deeper meaning of life. Each of the four sessions will deal with a different topic:           

     o   Giving clear messages
     o   Developing listening skills
     o   Growing in problem solving skills
     o   Understanding communication styles

         Dr. James A. Natter will engage participants by providing the group with a variety of experiences, discussions and exercises. You will also be asked to work at home on the skills between each of the four sessions.

Use of an on-line relationship awareness tool called Thrive Sphere, will also be an option for couples ($25).

Dr. Natter is the Executive Director and a staff counselor at the Central DuPage Pastoral Counseling Center. He is a licensed clinical psychologist and a certified mediator. He has been a practicing clinical psychologist since 1992.
