Goals and Objectives
Over its 37 year history, Better Marriages has trained thousands of couples to lead marriage enrichment and marriage education events. Comprehensive training (40 contact hours) equips couples to lead as a team. They are trained in the methods of group process and experiential, hands-on learning. Couples are prepared to lead retreats, small groups, workshops and couple classes. Though couples receive pages upon pages of resources, they are not limited to any specific curriculum. This broad-based training empowers couples to lead any program, class or event and to do so more effectively. Leadership Training is highly recommended for lay couples in organizations that want to develop programs to effectively reach couples.
Goal of Leader Couple Training
Assess, develop and increase individual and couple leader skills through a combination of participation and observation, mini-lectures, reading, interaction, couple dialogue, and leadership skill practice
Leader Couple Trainees will:
a. Discuss the scope and requirements for several kinds of CE events,
b. Agree on their goals and objectives for the event they will plan,
c. Develop a complete outline for a CE event using all of the components of a CE event, and
d. Present the outline to the group
Demonstrate ability to plan and present a Marriage Enrichment segment to other Leader CoupleTrainees and Trainer Couple
Explore the growing edges of their relationship and leadership style through an in-depth couple dialogue in a small group with a Trainer Couple for approximately 45 minutes
Complete a self evaluation and discuss privately with a Trainer Couple; identify areas of strength and improvement and develop a plan for post-event training
Chosen from among the best of certified leader couples throughout the world, Better Marriages Trainer Couples have a wide variety of leadership experience. The trainer/couple ratio is low, with events having no more than eight couples per Trainer Couple. This allows for plenty of one-on-one time with the Trainer Couple in order to benefit from their encouragement, wisdom and insight. Eddie and Sylvia Robertson are the trainers for this workshop. Eddie and Sylvia Robertson of Waleska, GA, will be the trainers for this event. More info about the Robertsons may be found at www.eddieandsylviarobertson.com
