Take your relationship in for a ‘tune-up’ this Valentine’s weekend at URI

KINGSTON, R.I. — February 5, 1999 — Sometimes more than your car can be in need of a tune-up. This Valentine’s weekend, the University of Rhode Island Marriage and Family Therapy Program is sponsoring a free program called “Tune up your relationship for Valentine’s Day.” Any couples wishing to get their relationship running more smoothly may participate. Counselors will be on hand on Friday, Feb. 12, from 4 to 7 p.m. and on Saturday, Feb. 13, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to meet with couples and discuss such possible problems as communication styles and approaches to arguments. No appointment is necessary. Couples can simply drop by the URI Transition Center at Lower College Road and Route 138. The program is free and open to the public. If couples decide they need further counseling, they can pick up materials describing the counseling programs offered by the URI Marriage and Family Therapy Program, or referrals may be made to other counselors in the community. For questions, call the URI Family Therapy Clinic at 874-5956. For Further Information: Dale Blumen, 401-874-5956 Dave Lavallee, 401-874-2116
