"Maintaining a healthy relationship can be hard work. When one or both of the partners have experienced service-related trauma, there is often a residual effect on the ability to maintain a healthy, supportive and loving relationship."

Melwood Veteran Services and Clear Path for Veterans are partnering to offer a weekend experience specially designed for couples (be they Veterans, active duty service members or dual-service partnerships) where one of both partners are struggling with the effects of service-related trauma. It is a program run by Veterans for Veterans, and focuses on communication, partnership and "seeing with love."

Through fun outdoor activities, stimulating group discussions and introspective and art therapies, couples will explore their relationship together, learn about themselves and their partners in a relaxed and positive environment, and hear about proven techniques for the self-management of symptoms, stressors, and responses. Coupled activities throughout the weekend highlight the value of communication and being seen in a partnership as well as the value of group support in driving post-traumatic growth, authenticity and clear communication. As a result, couples learn tools and techniques to maintain a resilient, supportive and loving relationship, leading to an overall improvement in their quality of partnership.

Couples would arrive on Friday to start the retreat, stay Friday and Saturday night at the Craftsman Inn in Fayetteville (just 10 minutes from Clear Path) and conclude the retreat at Clear Path for Veterans.
