Our Relationship Educators are formally trained and certified in the curriculum Prevention Relationship Enhancement Program (PREP), and come from a variety of backgrounds, such as licensed counselors, social workers, educators, and from community based organizations.
The PREP approach is a scientifically-based and empirically-tested method of teaching relationship education. It is based on over 30 years of research in the field of relationship health, with much of the research conducted at the University of Denver, and sponsored by the National Institute of Health.
Must be 18 years of age to participate. Participants can enroll as an individual or as a couple. These services are available to all eligible persons, regardless of race, gender, age, disability, or religion.
No, our workshops offer relationship education to couples and individuals as well as essential skills to promote success in the workplace while learning more about personal strengths. Our program will help you learn effective communication strategies, gain tools to cope with stressful situations, learn to listen and be heard and improve conflict management skills to positively impact careers and relationships. Every participant is assigned a Family Case Manager. They provide participants with information and resources as needed.
Project Harmony does not offer direct counseling services. Once enrolled in Project Harmony, your assigned Family Case Manager will provide resources upon request. These may include referrals for counseling services.
If you are participating with your partner/significant other, both of you will be placed in the same group. However, if you chose to participate in our program for individuals, we cannot guarantee that you will be assigned to the same group.
