Family Life Skills of Austin

Organization Description: 

Do I Need "Life Skills"? Experiences from our past affect us more than we think. Over 90% of marriage & relationship problems are rooted in childhood experiences. Is your marriage the best it could be? How about other relationships? Do you like yourself? Are you drawn to the same kind of person again & again? Want a better quality of life? Are your current choices working for you? It's not all about abuse. It is about the expectations we learned as a child that we carry into adulthood. But, did you know that domestic abuse involves not only physical abuse, but sexual, emotional, verbal, silence, religious, & even rejection? There are 21 forms of abuse. Some forms of abuse are so subtle that people accept them as OK & normal. All forms of abuse are devastating & destroy the individual & their relationships.

Mission Statement: 

Family Life Skills of Austin is a place where adults (married, divorced, engaged or single) attend gender-separate classes to be taught valuable life skills from the curriculum, " Learning to Live, Learning to Love " . Whether you are experiencing marriage problems, are (or were) in an abusive relationship, are trying to break patterns of the past, or to develop or enhance your relationships -- Life Skills can help . If a person has come from a dysfunctional family, they don't know what they don't know nor what healthy looks like. We deal with family & individual value systems & personal growth. Those who attend discover some of the " Why?" questions behind unhealthy behaviors & thought processes using Developmental Reconstruction . Then we end the program with learning what "healthy" looks like.
