Learn To Coach Couples, Facilitate Groups & Become A Trauma Informed Relationship Coach

Are You A Natural Born Helper?

The RC2- Professional Training Program Objective:

RC2 is designed to expand yourself as a relationship coach who can work with couples, lead groups effectively, parts work, and become a “trauma informed” relationship coach.

Program Highlights:

RC2 targets 5 main areas of growth and development that will be our building blocks:

  1. Couples coaching
  2. Parts work with individuals
  3. Trauma basics (top down and bottom up models)
  4. Group facilitation
  5. Teaching (Bonus)

Our goal is to empower you in all 5 of these. However, given our time, we will provide a good working foundation for all of them, specifically 1-4.

This program is NOT for you if you:

  • Are not called to continue to train with The Relationship School®
  • Don’t want to work with couples
  • Don’t want to learn about trauma and the 180 in greater detail
  • Are not interested in group work

How to Qualify

The first requirement for RC2 Level is to have successfully graduated from RC1.

To aspire to this advanced level of certification you must be fully committed investing yourself to develop your capacity to deal with more challenging clients and issues. This training will build off RC1 and feel like a natural progression. You will be challenged beyond your current competencies and you might feel like a beginner again, especially when you get to couples or the 180. However, you will indeed graduate with a whole new level of confidence in the coaching seat.

To qualify and be accepted into the RC2 advanced Level you must apply as per the process provided below. Your RC1 graduation does qualify you, but to be accepted you must go through the application process.

We want students in this program who are committed to increasing their self-value/worth. Why? Because at the end of the day that’s what you are teaching others to do. And if you can’t value yourself, it’s going to be hard to show someone else how to do it.
