Lieber mit dem alten Partner etwas Neues, als mit einem neuen Partner wieder das Alte! as an answer

The results of the questionnaires and research led to the following conception for

  • Couples want to learn how to live in marriage and as a family.

  • They want to know about the different forms of their unique sexuality.

  • New networks with friends and neighbours seem indispensable for the partnership.

Necessary is room to learn exactly this, where they can experience each other as competent partners.

Linking seminars

Partnerschule is mostly a counselling in and with groups. There are three types of seminar: The basic-course (6 days), the explore of sensuality and sexuality (3 weekends) and a couple intensive training of communication and interaction (14 days).

The meaning for afflicted children

Parents get the possibility to take their children with them. Someone takes care of them during the sessions. In the childrens groups activities and the caring of the group leaders are in the foreground and the problems of the parents are in the background. This procedure is more effective than groups where families are asked to talk only. The project Deutschen Arbeitskreises für Jugend-, Ehe- und Familienberatung (DAK) zur Gewaltprävention Bestandsaufnahme von Modellen der Erziehungs und Familienberatung zur Förderung einer gewaltfreier Erziehung chose the model of as a model (Sanders 2001)

The average of children lies by 12 in the age of a few days up to 16 years. To show a summarized effectiveness of the procedure intra group effectivness study(IGES) was evaluated too. IGES is determined by the mean of the pre and post difference whereas the scattering is used as the standard base for pre and post values. The calculation of effects gives the advantage to compare standardized proportions and makes a comparison between different studies possible. Cohen (1988) determines an effecincy of .40 are low and.80 are high; whereas an effectiveness of .41 bis .79 have a medium effect.
