ABOUT THE THIRD OPTION PROGRAM
The Third Option is a skills based program that helps participants build stronger more fulfilling relationships. Each 14 session cycle covers a comprehensive set of 14 topics that people can use to develop better understanding, sensitivity and trust while learning more effective speaking and listening skills.
The skills learned in the Third Option can and will bring couples closer together than they ever thought possible, however the Third Option is NOT just for couples.
If you have gone through a divorce, or are currently going through a divorce, chances are that you will be in other relationships down the road. If you are like most of us, you will take your “old baggage” into that new relationship. The Third Option is a program that can help us clean up that old baggage so that we don’t take it into other relationships and make the same mistakes over and over again. You can come to The Third Option class by yourself; in fact, many people choose to come alone.
The Third Option class combines skill-building workshops with sharing from couples that have “been there”, in combination with a support group component. The atmosphere is warm and caring.
The Third Option is based on Self Change……
