Intimate relationships take hard work. They do not just happen — they require attention. This CoupleTALK program is designed to help you give more attention to your relationship. CoupleTALK emphasizes skill-building. It also stresses a process of growth and behavior change to help the relationship become stronger and more satisfying to both of you. The process is risky and it takes time. It requires partners to reveal more of themselves and accept what their mates are revealing.
