Couples Enrichment Weekend Workshop Policies

This workshop is not professional training -- even though professionals who attend may find the personal benefit of this experience can facilitate their professional work. This is not a workshop in how to conduct a Couples Enrichment Weekend, or training in the Passionate Marriage® or Crucible® Approaches, or training as a workshop leader, counselor or therapist. The lectures, activities and handouts are provided to you for your personal use rather than to supply material for your professional work-related activities or publications. No commercial or nonprofit usage of workshop content or materials is authorized or permitted.

The “PASSIONATE MARRIAGE” Couples Enrichment Weekend represents years of work and development. This includes the founding and elaboration of the "CRUCIBLE APPROACH" to therapy as both theory and process, the evolution of the “PASSIONATE MARRIAGE” Approach to Counseling, and the design, implementation, and refinement of the “PASSIONATE MARRIAGE” Couples Enrichment Weekend itself. All Couples Enrichment Weekend lectures are recorded and copyrighted; all materials (including slides and handouts) are trademarked, copyrighted, and protected under other intellectual property laws.

Some participants in prior Couples Enrichment Weekends have wanted to distribute these materials at their own workshops, or use them with clients they counsel, or include them in publications of their own. Others have wanted to adapt or modify these materials for their own use (technically known as “derivative works”). You may not copy, duplicate, distribute, or plagiarize our copyrighted materials. You should be heedful that “derivative works,” which include but are not limited to, adapting, rewording or modifying our material or presentations for your own purposes, are also not permitted. Notes you take during the workshop (also technically “derivative works”) should not be distributed to others -- you are registering for this program as a couple and information you receive therein should be restricted to that scope. Other practices that violate trademarks, copyrights, and/or collegial fairness include -- but are not limited to -- advertising or conducting workshops that appear to be training in our trademarked approaches, as well as using names and labels for your publications and programs that confuse the public or other professionals, or that blur the distinction between our work and yours.

Attending this workshop does not sanction you to represent yourself as a practitioner or representative of the Passionate Marriage or Crucible Approaches, nor does it grant you permission to advertise our trademarks. Training in the Passionate Marriage and Crucible Approaches can only be provided by the Marriage & Family Health Center. Beyond the legal issues involved, we ask that you observe the more important and stringent criteria of ethics, integrity, and collegial good will in how you use what you learn in our workshops.

We also ask that you disclose potential conflicts of interests with us so we can avoid the acrimony and awkwardness that sometimes surface when such issues are not thoroughly and openly dealt with in advance. For most workshop applicants, this takes just a moment.
