The Strengthening Your Relationship Course is an excellent foundation for the Enhancing Sexual Intimacy Course. While not required, it is recommended that you take the relationship course first or in conjunction with the sexuality course.
These courses are on-line. Therefore there will be a video element that allows you to see powerpoint slides, watch videos selected by the instructor to demonstrate principles, and see the instructor (me) throughout the class. You will simultaneously be on conference call so you can ask questions as needed. This format allows you to attend and learn while maintaining privacy if desired.
All classes are RECORDED and sent to the participants. So if you or your spouse is not able to attend a class, you can watch it after the fact.
Please see the column to the right for Class Sign-ups and deadlines. If you have any questions about the courses, please send a message through my contact form, and let me know if you'd like to receive email updates about this class.
