Family Life Skills
BREAKING FREE FROM THE PAST... to be the person you desire to be.
Do You Believe...
If you really knew me, you wouldn't love me.
Everything is always my fault.
I had some trauma in my life, but it doesn't affect me now.
If my partner would just change, everything would be just fine
I can't seem to develop any close relationships.
It is not okay for me to make mistakes.
Do any of these statements apply to you? If so, we can help! Some of the most basic and personal things that we believe about ourselves are the result of sound input. At Life Skills, we examine our foundational beliefs in order to develop new thinking and to learn the skills necessary to "Learn to Live and Learn to Love."
What is Life Skills?
Life Skills is a network of affiliate centers around the world whose trained facilitators teach the "Learning to Live, Learning to Love" curriculum.
What is the "Learning to Live, Learning to Love" Curriculum?
The curriculum was originally created to support and aid people involved in abusive relationships. However, Life Skills has proven to fine-tune and bring enrichment to any relationship, whether abuse is present or not. We have discovered that past hurts shared within the group setting have common root issues. Most adults have personal experience with abuse or rejection at some point in their life. The common issues can be one or a combination of physical, verbal, psychological, emotional economic, and even silent abuse, along with stalking, rejection, and other forms of manipulation and control.
Some of the topics covered in class are:
Defining and Identifying Abuse
Guilt and Shame
Healthy and Lasting Relationships
What is the Weekly Program?
Our 26-week program consists of one three-hour session each week. Our Learning to Live, Learning to Love" classes are conducted separately for men and women, and each person is treated with respect and dignity. Our facilitators present the curriculum through oral presentation, workbook study, group discussion, videos, and other visual aides.
What is the Goal of Life Skills?
Life Skills teaches skills that a person would have otherwise learned in a balanced, healthy home between birth and age 18. Implementing these new skills will enable each individual to rebuild their life and improve their self-image. Our goal is to help each individual increase their capacity to function in relationships and, where possible, to offer hope of reconciliation.
What Are the Class Fees?
Class fees are based on a sliding scale according to each family's gross annual income. The minimum class fee is $20, and your class fee will be determined at your intake appointment. Class fees are paid at the beginning of each class.
