"We have seen the results, now anytime we disagree on something we have a way to discuss it that brings results not frustration. A great class."
- Meredith and Tom, KS

"This class was amazing! It gave us the chance to openly acknowledge and confront actual situations that we have with each other in a way that gives respect. We've been married for twenty three years but every couple, however long they've been married, should learn the concepts that this class offers. It would be great for engaged couples too. Thank you Family Dynamics and Laurie Puhn for such an amazing class."
- Dawn and Steve, OK

"This class really did help us to fight less and love more. It was great to learn the different kinds of conversations and have examples of them to read and learn from. Then to try them out and see how well they worked is helping my husband and I in a number of ways. Thanks it is a great class!"
- Wendy and Mike, OH

"We think this is a perfect starter class for your marriage, we wish we had learned these conversation styles before we were married, would have stopped a lot of stupid arguments. It was an easy and actually fun course to take."
- Marty and Lynn, TX

Guided Resources: Fight Less, Love More book, Student Workbooks and DVD. Utilizing these resources, couples examine communication problems and hidden patterns of interaction while learning new concepts about relationships and specific conflict resolution and verbal skills to enhance love, respect, appreciation, compassion and intimacy.

Guided Activities: Each week, couples complete a series of assignments that reinforce the lesson learned the week before and introduce new concepts for the week ahead. In class, couples practice using the new verbal skills in 5-minute conversations and receive positive feedback from peers.

Guided Questions: Weekly, the group meets to discuss and apply the skills taught in that week's lesson. Throughout the course, the group helps reinforce new verbal skills and support the growth of all the couples.

Guided Group Interaction: Through interacting with other couples who are learning and challenging themselves too, a unique support and accountability system occurs. The varying personalities and life experiences of the group creates stimulating discussions and an encouraging environment for change. By the end of the course, you and your spouse have come together to create a new, more fulfilling way of living, loving and understanding each other. You now have the skills to fight less and love more every day.
