This morning workshop is dedicated to better preparing singles and couples without children for an upcoming international move. In this interactive workshop, individuals and couples will discuss the four stages of moving and brainstorm methods to manage stress and communicate effectively throughout the transition.
"This was exceptionally useful for my spouse to see that everyone had the same worries he has, that other couples react to stress in ways that aren't healthy for their relationships, and so on. Basically it was a reality check for him (both of us) to put what we were experiencing in context rather than blowing it out of proportion."
"I feel that I have a better idea of how to look for and better manage stress as related to the move. We received some great pointers on how to better manage the transition."
