Starting this Fall, the Quin Curtis Center in Morgantown, WV will be offering a new psychoeducational group. The ELEVATE program is evidence based and was developed for the purpose of enhancing intimate relationships.
ELEVATE is a program that helps couples work on and improve various aspects of their relationships. Some of these aspects include building communication skills, conflict management, expressing affectionate behaviors, and understanding your partner’s perspective.
Couples will participate in four classes that will teach them how to improve these aspects of their relationship. Instruction will include interactive activities, discussions, and educational videos. The ELEVATE program is scheduled to start Friday, October 13th from 10:30-12:30, in the Mountain Lair on WVU’s Downtown Campus in the Blackwater Room. There is a one-time $20 fee per couple for the four-week program. Couples who are interested in participating in the ELEVATE program should reserve a place by contacting Chad Thompson (firstname.lastname@example.org), Tinh Dang (email@example.com), or call the Quin Curtis Center at 304-293-1824 ext.0. Please feel free to distribute the attached brochure.
The Quin Curtis Center is a psychological service, training and research center. Through a new initiative the Quin Curtis Center (QCC) is now interdisciplinary and has a team of psychology and social work graduate student interns working together. The ELEVATE program is part of the relationship focus of this team. Couple and family therapy referrals are also welcome.
