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 (cdthompson@mix.wvu.edu), Tinh Dang (tndang@mix.wvu.edu), 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.

Thought about joining Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR)?

Any woman 18 years or older who can prove lineal, bloodline descent from an ancestor who aided in achieving American independence is eligible to join the DAR. She must provide documentation for each statement of birth, marriage and death, as well as of the Revolutionary War service of her Patriot ancestor.

DAR volunteers in chapters throughout the country can provide guidance and assistance with the application process. Admission to membership in the National Society is through a chapter or as a Member-At-Large.

When you have discovered your own genealogical background, check to see if someone has already joined DAR using your ancestor.  You might have a portion of a lineage in common.  To find out check the Descendants and Ancestor links in the GRS.

If you discover a common lineage in the GRS, you may want to see the complete DAR application detailing this lineage, called a Record Copy. Electronic Record Copies may be purchased directly from the GRS.

By completing the application process you will discover how your ancestor helped to achieve American Independence.
