Dr. Trudy" offers 5 day intensives to individuals needing recovery from past abuse and also "Bootcamp" intensives for marriages. She has crafted a very unique program that requires each spouse to "put the oxygen mask on themselves first." Working with couples for years she realizes marriage counseling doesn't always accomplish change in spouses because they are focusing on change in their spouse rather than themselves. In reality, they are needing their own personal work before trying to mend the marriage relationship. Here is what a typical bootcamp looks like:
Spouse A Monday - Thursday 9:00-12:00
Spouse B Monday - Thursday 1:30-4:30
Couples then spend the last day on Friday letting go of the hurt and pain of the old marriage and learning new communication skills.
The Friday session is 9:00-12:00 and 1:30-4:30 for a total of 30 hours for this Marriage Bootcamp program. Cost for the counseling for this marriage bootcamp is $3980.00. This does not include the expense of travel and lodging in Phoenix.
