Family Playing- Family Enrichment Courses

“The course exceeded our expectations. We were pleased with the speakers and technical notes.”

Courses

The courses offered by Family Enrichment use the case study method to look at problems that can arise between married couples and in families. With the case study method, you read the case four times: first by yourself; then with your spouse; next with a small group of couples; and finally, with all the small groups together in a general session. In these general sessions, guided by a trained moderator, couples discuss and debate the case and brainstorm solutions to the problems that are discovered by looking at the facts.
