Become an Instructor of this “Best Practice” Relationship Skills Course!

“Within Our Reach™ 8 Hours” 2-Day Instructor Training

Taught by Bill Coffin, Healthy Relationships CA Staff Member & PREP® Trainer

Within Our Reach (8 hours), developed and copyrighted by PREP, Inc., condenses the material from Within Our Reach to walk couples through the application of relationship skills that heighten the quality of their union, including: fostering improved communication, managing expectations, and devoting themselves to a mutual commitment and support. “You’ll enjoy teaching this course to others!”

Why it Matters

This curriculum empowers couples to…

• Learn to replace communication danger signs with proactive strategies for respectful talking and listening.

• Explore sharing fun and satisfying intimate needs by working as a team to nurture and support each other.

• Practice managing stress and reducing the negative effects of stress on a relationship

• Recognize and communicate issues and expectations, including planning for the future.

• Investigate the impact that past experiences can have on a couple’s future.

• Acknowledge long-term satisfaction through the gift of commitment.

What’s Unique About Within Our Reach – 8 Hours? Time is short. Couples and facilitators are looking to make the most of the little time they have and WOR (8 hours) is helping them do just that. This curriculum pares down the bare essentials of Within Our Reach and delivers the skeletal frame of the same engaging curriculum in less time.

Participant Driven: Within Our Reach – 8 hours includes over 22 activities & moves away from the traditional lecture format to help engage busy couples in the actual application of the themes presented.

This training program is offered through the support of HHS/ACF and Healthy Relationships California (
