The mission of Yachad’s Dating and Maintaining Relationships Skills Group is for Jewish individuals with developmental disabilities ages 21-34 to acquire essential dating skills necessary to develop and enhance relationships between individuals of the opposite gender.
Yachad’s Dating and Maintaining Relationships Skills Group covers a wide range of topics such as Setting Up a Date, Initiating and Maintaining Conversations, Affection and Building Trust, Feedback in a Relationship, Going on the Date, and more. The course will utilize a variety of practical, educational and experiential techniques to discuss many necessary components of a healthy, fulfilling dating or marital relationship. To practice these skills in a real world setting, participants will have the opportunity to go out into structured dating environments with co-participants and the group’s highly trained facilitators and licensed supervisor.
