We have just returned from another successful Odyssey. Our couple is doing really well and we wish them a long, happy and fulfilling relationship as they return to their home.
Sometimes it takes a trip away from the children and the responsibilities of home and work for the couple to put all their combined energies into fixing their marriage. Bryce and I can often see the problems during the first few hours of the Odyssey and then we can offer suggestions to repair the damage. On our Odyssey journey our couples have ample opportunities to practice new things that can enrich the relationship. On the final day of our trip together we give our couples a “prescription” of things that they may need to continue to do over the next many months. This can be enrollment in a therapeutic group, one-on-one therapy with a qualified mental health professional, and/or exercises to do alone or with their partner. Many of these exercises come from Bryce’s book, The Marriage First Aid Kit.
