Easy & Enjoyable Ways to Nurture and Heal Relationships Through Play
This website is intended to be a resource of articles and advice to strengthen relationships. What is contained in these pages is drawn from my years of couples counseling and my own marriage, to my wife and playmate, Joan. You can read more information about me, Keith, here. This website is both an expansion and companion to a book that I wrote a few years ago: "Couples and the Art of Playing." While recognizing that relationships are varied and of all sorts, certain truths and concepts exist that can help across the board. I emphasize three easy and life changing concepts:
Discover ways to revitalize your relationships that are both easy and inexpensive. Everyone has been playful at some time in their lives - rediscover simple ways to be playful again in your relationships and create a hopeful, positive future together. Many couples play until the first child arrives - find out how to continue to play no matter how many children you might have. Play will help you keep the passion alive and growing and will assist the way you communicate with each other. You will find in these pages some fun playsheets, details of playshops (we call these "play..." not "work..."), and advice as to how to put play into your relationship.
Have fun exploring these pages and then let me know what you do to put play into your relationship.
