Couples consistently name “improved communication” as the greatest need in their relationships. Love Talk, a six-session, video-based study by acclaimed relationship experts Drs. Les and Leslie Parrott, gives you a simple plan to communicate in love with your spouse. The first steps to improving communication are to identify your fear factors and determine your personal communication styles. Then you can learn how the two of you can best interact. This study uses easy-to-understand language that clearly teaches you what you need to do—and not do—to speak each other’s language like you never have before.
In Session 1, “Communication 101,” you will discern when you have your best conversations as a couple and one practical thing you can do to make time to connect.
In Session 2, “The Foundation of Every Conversation,” you will learn your “fear factor” and discern how this changes the way you speak with each other.
In Session 3, “Your Personal Talk Style,” you will decide whether facts or feelings are more important to you, and which of you is spontaneous and which is cautious and also identify your personal talk style.
In Session 4, “The Secret to Emotional Connection,” you will discern whether you are an analyzer or sympathizer. You will discuss the act of empathy and how you can use empathy with your spouse.
In Session 5, “When Not to Talk,” you will discuss the idea of not talking to each other and discern how you react to anger and your “advice quotient.”
In Session 6, “The Most Important Conversation You’ll Ever Have,” you will discuss the idea of self-talk and discern how much of your self-talk is positive or negative and come up with specific ways to make your self-talk more positive.
