This PAIRS Professional Training event will prepare USCG Chaplains, Social Workers and other Behavioral Health Specialists to deliver PAIRS marriage enrichment retreats in communities across the nation. This program will equip instructors to empower Guardians and family members with proven, practical tools to create, nurture, restore, and rekindle relationships through the application of acquired skills and knowledge.
In this intensive, four-day, experiential training, you will discover immediately usable skills that facilitate expanded communication, deepen empathy, bonding and attachment, promote constructive conflict resolution, and enhance emotional understanding, expression, connection and forgiveness which can in turn be applied in the family relationships of combat veterans.
