Healthy adult romantic relationships are critical to well-being in other life domains. Life presents many challenges and when people face a build-up of common stressors, it becomes harder to form and maintain healthy intimate relationships. Research shows that supportive, trusting, equitable partnerships characterized by open, healthy communication can buffer the impact of other life stress. By teaching adults how to enhance their communication, connection, and teamwork (couples course) or how to better understand their own values and expectations for healthy future relationships (singles course), ShowMe Healthy Relationships (SMHR) focuses on skills that enhance intimate relationship stability. Moreover, having these foundational skills better equips adults to take on the challenges in other areas of their lives: parenting/coparenting, personal finances, and managing life stressors.
ShowMe Healthy Relationships offers free courses for Missouri couples and individuals who want to be in a committed relationship. Courses are designed to help you strengthen and nurture your relationship with your spouse or partner. If you are not currently in a committed relationship, you can also learn ways to choose a great partner when you are ready.
You and a program coach will create a personal plan that will help you decide which of these courses may be beneficial to you and your family.
