Couples

Couples will attend workshops to learn very simple, but practical tools for keeping a healthy relationship. Our workshops offer couples the opportunity to spend quality time together while enhancing their ability to resolve conflicts, improve communication skills and obtain growth within their relationship. Participants will also engage in our Career Pathways Program that includes workshops to improve knowledge and skills in financial literacy and to enhance employability skills.

Funding for this project was provided by the United States Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families, Grant: #90FM0078. These services are available to all eligible persons, regardless of race, gender, age, disability, or religion.

Project Harmony is classified as a research study at the University of Central Florida, UCF IRB SBE-15-11828. This study is under the direction of Dr. Sejal Barden, Principal Investigator and Dr. Dalena Dillman Taylor, Co-Principal Investigator.

Orientation Session

Couples will attend an orientation session in a group setting to discuss the program overview and complete initial questionnaires while enjoying a complimentary meal. Due to the nature of the study, each couple will be randomly assigned together by a computer generated system. After random assignment, each couple will continue in one of two formats.

Eligibility: You must be at least 18 years of age, in a committed relationship, regardless of marital status, with an interest in learning more about healthy relationships and improving your career skills.

COUPLES: Complete the form to learn more about our workshop.

“You can come together with anyone at any moment, simply by giving them your attention, affection, or love. It is when we choose to be fully present with our loved ones in “the old-fashioned way” that we build our most profound and beautiful connections”

“We can choose to focus on our mistakes and internalize that there is little hope for change within ourselves or our relationship. Or we can acknowledge our mistakes, explore their roots, make repairs, and move on to continue the dance.”

“Generosity involves willingly sacrificing time and emotional energy on behalf of your relationship. It gives more than is expected, without expecting anything in return.”
