An interdisciplinary team of Syracuse University faculty and staff is sponsoring a workshop on “Relationship Enhancement for Couples and Families,” to be held Oct. 25 from 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. at the Goldstein Student Center on South Campus.
Robert Scuka, executive director of the National Institute of Relationship Enhancement in Bethesda, Md., will lead the workshop. Scuka will discuss the Relationship Enhancement model, a skills-training methodology that allows human service professionals to empower distressed individuals, couples and families gain new skill sets that help them resolve current and future problems.
Scuka is the author of several manuals on relationship enhancement, as well as the book “Relationship Enhancement Therapy: Healing Through Deep Empathy and Intimate Dialogue” (Routledge, 2005), and has produced three DVDs on relationship enhancement.
The workshop is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services-funded research project “Promoting Child Welfare: Training Professionals to Support Healthy Marriages, Relationships and Families” in the College of Human Services and Health Professions (HSHP). In addition to HSHP’s Departments of Child and Family Studies, Health and Wellness, Marriage and Family Therapy, and Social Work, other SU partners include the School of Education’s Department of Counseling and Human Services and the Study Council at Syracuse University.
Registration fee is $35. Registration deadline is Oct. 23. More information and a registration form are available online at hshp.syr.edu, or by contacting Jacqueline Spears at (315) 443-5550 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
