Strengthening the Couple Relationship Through
an Exploration of Parenting Attitudes and Skills 

Happy Family - Quality Time

The MA & PA Program 

MA & PA, as the program is affectionately called, focuses on strengthening the couple relationship (married or unmarried) through a shared exploration of parenting attitudes and skills. This 10-week curriculum utilizes some of the most effective approaches from The Nurturing Father's Program to create a series of couple's dialogues.  With the addition of new relationship building activities, spouses/partners learn about themselves and each other, while creating a shared vision for family life. The weekly group experiential activities, and the Home Activities in the MA & PA Journal, help each couple to develop the attitudes and skills for successful family formation. [more]
