The Us Factor, by Joseph Melnick, Ph.D., is an exciting new program for couples who want to feel closer and more connected to each other and to learn the skills necessary for creating a strong relationship.
The Us Factor program is a DVD-based course for couples at all stages of a relationship. The goal of this program is to help couples learn essential skills for nurturing love and creating a strong, vibrant bond together. Dr. Joseph Melnick teaches these skills through a variety of learning methods--video demonstrations, reading short workbook chapters that support the video, and hands-on exercises that you and your partner can do together.
The course consists of 12 DVD's, each one about fourty-five minutes
long, with a companion workbook for use as a supplement to the DVD's.
The format of each DVD combines in-depth discussions, between Dr. Melnick and his associate, that teach vital relationship skills in a straight-forward, yet thought-provoking way. The videos also include vignettes of Dr. Melnick working with couples in ways that powerfully support and illustrate the principles being taught.
The written materials and exercises in the workbook then further build on each DVD lesson. The exercises are primarily designed for you and your spouse to do together, but they can also be done by only one spouse.
One of the benefits of the Us Factor is that it can be done in the
comfort of your home and you can learn at your own pace. The vignettes
in the DVD's offer the opportunity for couples to learn from observing
Seeing other couples facing similar problems as you, seeing them making noticeable shifts in their attitude and communication, and seeing them reconnect with each other can give you a lot of hope and confidence in your own ability to do the same.
You can begin to apply the skills soon after reviewing the DVD's. You can begin to re-connect and re-ignite the good feelings and positive communication you once had.
This is a user-friendly program with very little psychological jargon.
Dr. Melnick both speaks and writes in an easy, soft-spoken,
conversational style. He has a knack for expressing himself in a way
that goes to the heart of the matter, offering useful, practical gems of
knowledge and useful tools that have that "rings-so-true" quality.
The Us Factor is billed as "simple, powerful
skills to bring you closer together." This program is for anyone looking for ways to strengthen their
communication and feel closer and more connected in their relationship.
It will likely appeal to couples who would otherwise not see a couples counsellor either because of the expense associated with months of therapy or because they feel reluctant to expose their relationship troubles to a stranger.
The Us Factor will probably also appeal to couples who are looking for "homework" or supplementary exercises to support their marriage counselling sessions.
In The US Factor DVD's and workbook, Dr. Joseph Melnick will show you specifically how to:

As Dr. Melnick says, you do have options. Divorce and unhappiness are not the only choices open to you. This course will help you on your journey in learning how to create and maintain a successful, long-term relationship.
