Webinar Description:

Nearly all couples will experience negative financial events and the economic pressure that they generate.  Researchers have shown a clear link between economic pressure and relationship distress.  However researchers have also demonstrated that certain factors (i.e., attitudes, individual and relationship behaviors) that allow couples to weather economic pressure resiliently.  This webinar will focus on these factors that can help couples avoid relationship distress in spite of economic pressure.
