We believe that a healthy relationship between co-parents is the foundation for an emotionally healthy family. PEP offers workshops and retreats to help couples strengthen their connection, communicate openly and constructively and grow together into a deeper, more fulfilling relationship.
Our programs for couples are developed by Barbara and Don Fairfield, a certified leader couple with Better Marriages. Barbara, a licensed marriage and family therapist, has led PEP’s Open Forum Counseling sessions since 1982. Don is a retired NASA physicist. The workshops and mini-retreat are presented by Better Marriages-certified leader couples, and the topics are offered on a rotating basis, one per season.
Our advanced courses for all adults cover the history, theories and research findings that form the basis of our education for parenting, improving relationships and achieving life goals. These courses, including Adlerian Theory and Positive Psychology, may offer Continuing Education Units (CEU’s) for professional counselors and therapists.
