The Harvard Business Review notes that between 1996 and 2006, the percentage of two-income married couples rose 31% in the US. Today, a whopping 47.5%, of all American married couples are classified as dual-career.
The stress of dual careers on a marriage and family is unbearable for so many. This is manifested through challenges in communication.
As a result, Creative Communication Network is reviving and revising our very first public workshop we ever facilitated, entitled “Dual Career Couples Communication Workshop.”
The format for the new program remains the same. We first taught this in 1998 to couples on a Sunday afternoon between 1:00 and 5:00 in churches and wedding chapels. The fee was only $50 per couple, including materials.
The new fee will be $75 per couple, and each program is restricted to the first twenty couples who enroll. We will still facilitate this in churches and wedding chapels on Sunday afternoons. We will also consider other venues and times as well, as the demand may dictate.
We will offer this revived program as soon as we have completely updated the content with the most current statistics and techniques. Our pledge is to bring the most relevant information and techniques to the participants in the program.
One twist is that we will have a Spanish version for Latina audiences. The facilitator is Carmen Coreas, an international consultant, who is bilingual, and who brings a strong spiritual influence to the program. Carmen is pictured to the right.
The agenda is as follows:
WELCOME AND BACKGROUND
IN OUR DUAL CAREER MARRIAGE, HOW CAN MY PARTNER BE A FRIEND AND NOT A STRANGER?
HOW CAN WE TALK WITH EACH OTHER ABOUT “MY DAY’ AT THE END OF THE DAY WHEN WE ARE TOGETHER?
HOW CAN WE CONFRONT EACH OTHER ABOUT IRRITATING ISSUES?
HOW CAN WE USE COMMUNICATION TO MAINTAIN SEX, COMMITMENT, AND INTIMACY IN OUR DUAL CAREER MARRIAGE?
HOW CAN WE STRENGTHEN EMPATHIC LISTENIGN SKILLS AND QUESTIONING TECHNIQUES IN COVERSATIONS WITH EACH OTHER?
We look forward to marketing and publicizing this program very soon.
Look for more information shortly!
