Help is available in various forms for couples seeking restoration in their marriage relationship. Often couples experiencing significant marital distress choose the option of attending a marriage intensive program. These programs are usually all-inclusive and held over several days to weeks. Marital intensive programs allow couples to spend a significant amount of counseling hours focused on their relationship over a relatively short time. Alternatively, couples would spend anywhere from 6 months to a year of typical weekly marriage counseling to obtain the same number of counseling hours provided to them through one marriage intensive program. Therefore, marriage intensives allow counselors to get to the root issues in a shorter time. If marriage intensives are an interest to you, please consider reviewing the resources below.
