In the U.S., there are nearly 2,000 divorces per day. Furthermore, regardless of the denomination, 24% of married people who are active members of a church report struggling in their marriages, yet these struggles are wide and varying. In this workshop, licensed mental health professionals and ministry leaders will learn how to help support Christian couples who desperately need encouragement and accountability during a difficult season of crisis. Participants will learn how to walk alongside couples in crisis based on the teachings from the Hope Restored marriage intensive program. For the past 20 years, more than 11,000 couples in crisis have attended this marriage “emergency room,” and over 80% of those couples have stayed together. Participants will be able to demonstrate therapeutic tools to help couples in crisis.
