Build Your Relationship Skills

Relationships Australia are offering a weekend course for same-sex couples who would like to develop better relationship skills. Entitled Building Better Relationships, the course helps couples to develop and practice some of the skills that assist couples to face challenges and work through differences.

Based on a popular course the organisation runs for heterosexual couples, the weekend covers skills required by all couples as well as looking at issues specific to same-sex couples.
