The University of Nebraska–Lincoln’s Employee Assistance Program is offering a relationship check-up class to faculty and staff.
The free offering, “Learn the Blueprint for a Sound Relationship House,” will feature a two-hour informational session designed to be a lighthearted overview of the essential components for relationship vitality. Participants will complete a brief, confidential questionnaire to identify areas of strength, challenge and target areas where corrective assistance is needed.
Sessions are 4 to 6 p.m. Oct. 10 and 24 and 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Nov. 11, all in the Nebraska Union. Participants are welcome to attend with their partner, but it is not required.
The information is based on the couples research of John and Julie Gottman. The program name is a metaphor to explain what it takes to enrich marital friendship, learn to manage conflict, and create ways to support each other’s hopes for the future.
The course will be led by Valerie Williams, a counselor and trainer with the Employee Assistance Program. Williams is a certified Seven Principles educator and has completed levels one and two training of Gottman Method Couples Therapy.
