Helping Couples Heal:

A Weekend Workshop for Couples Recovering From Betrayal Trauma

This powerful workshop is created to foster deep healing for couples in recovery from relational trauma and betrayal. This workshop will be co-led by Marnie Breecker, the founder of The Center For Relational Healing and Duane Osterlind, the founder of Novus Family Counseling & Recovery Center. We are excited to offer you this opportunity of having two leading experts in this field come together to provide you with this unique, healing program.

Helping Couples Heal is an empowering experience for couples committed to rebuilding intimacy, trust and stability in their relationship.  This two-day workshop is designed to facilitate healing through psycho-education, experiential practice and group process.  Because trust is the foundation for a healthy relationship, broken trust is the most critical injury for couples recovering from the impact of betrayal. A primary goal of this workshop is to provide a framework from which trust and intimacy can be restored through the healing of relational trauma.

Each workshop is limited to six couples, and an assessment is required prior to registration.

New 2020 workshop dates include:

May 22-23 in Los Angeles, July 10-11 in the Long Island area, September 25-26 in Los Angeles, and November 28-29 in Houston, TX.

To register for one of these workshops, please email lyndsey@lacrh.com or submit a webform on HelpingCouplesHeal.com.
