Event Details - Love Languages

Title: Love Languages
Type of Activity: Workshops & Seminars
Objective of Course / Workshop:

Have you ever wondered how relationships REALLY work? How do people feel loved and express their love? How do relationships get into trouble? Love languages is a way to find your client’s relationship DNA. The five Love Languages are a fantastic KEY in assisting couples to resolve conflict in their relationship and dramatically improve their relationship at the same time.

Most individuals live out of their Love Language, however, what if their partner’s love language is different. When this discord occurs, people do not feel loved. When they feel the relationship is empty or the wrong Love Language is used, relationships start to fall apart.

Most couples do not understand what their partners Love Languages are. This is an opportunity to be trained in this relationship tool. This workshop is best suited to those involved in couple counselling. Within a few sessions focusing on Love Languages, it can turn a couple’s relationship around. Working with Love Languages is solution focused and strength based. Problems are not the focus, however, they are reduced significantly in the process. Although love languages can stand alone as a therapeutic model it compliments other counselling practices such as motivational interviewing, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Core Value Therapy, Acceptance Commitment Therapy, and Mindfulness. For skilled therapists, Love Languages can be successfully used with clients who have or are experiencing domestic violence and relationship abuse.
