PAIRS MISSION
 
The mission of PAIRS is to teach those attitudes, emotional understandings and behaviors that nurture and sustain healthy relationships and to make this knowledge broadly available on behalf of a saner, safer, more loving world. 
 
PAIRS is an extraordinary relationship education program. PAIRS works "miracles" and routinely restores respect, love and intimacy - even for couples on the brink of divorce. 
 
In carefully crafted, safe settings, PAIRS leads individuals and couples through extraordinary learning experiences that build effective relationship skills. Whether working with "in love", struggling, or painfully stuck couples, PAIRS delivers the tools to communicate skillfully, to problem solve constructively, and to build lasting love.
 
PAIRS recognizes that relationship permanence is largely based on continuing intimacy. PAIRS demonstrates within each participant that bonding is the heart of intimacy. Through removing barriers and practicing skills, PAIRS participants learn how to connect to each other powerfully, effectively and consistently.     
 
PAIRS training is just that - Training and Education. PAIRS teaches skills for a happy and fulfilling relationship. It is not therapy and you will not be asked or required to reveal anything about your relationship in our classes. The skills training is for you and your partner and what you discuss is for your own personal benefit.
 
PAIRS workshops will complement Marriage or Couples Therapy if you are involved with a therapist. Therapists throughout the country have discovered that these dynamic workshops provide the skills needed for effective communication, bonding and problem-solving.
