Book Reading and Relationship Discussion Forum
By invitation only...
Saturday, July 30, 2016
Fort Washington, Maryland
Come meet the author of the Black MANual.
Dr. Shane Perrault will be discussing topics in his book that could help benefit your life, relationship and/or marriage.
Dr. Perrault founded his private Marital Therapy practice, African American Marriage Counseling, in 2004, where he helps to empower 15 to 25 African-American couples a week to begin to develop the skills to hear (and be heard by) their partner or spouse so that they can make peace with the past and begin to get past the pain.
Whether clients just heard, “I love you, but I’m not in love with you,” I need to forgive (or be forgiven by) you, or are trying to avoid separation or stop a divorce — Dr. Shane employs research-based methods to help couples develop the skills needed to turn-towards each other instead of turning-on each other in times of conflict to become what Dr. Gottman terms ‘marriage masters’ instead of ‘marriage disasters.’ To help clients resolve conflicts in a win/win versus a lose/lose fashion, he also partners with them to strengthen their listening and conflict resolution skills, and fluency in each other’s love languages.
Dr. Shane received his doctorate in Clinical Psychology from the Ohio State University and completed his undergraduate studies at Southern University. He has also completed Level I, II and III training in the world-renowned Gottman Marital Therapy Training Institute.
He is regularly invited to speak at church retreats, has spoken at the Congressional Black Caucus, blogs for Psychology Today, and is a media favorite who has been featured in Ebony and Essence magazines, the Washington Post and Washington Times, XM radio , BET and TV One. Dr. Shane has appeared as a guest expert in movies, including “You Saved Me,” a documentary about marriage in the Black community.
Most importantly, Dr. Shane is deeply committed to helping you find and enjoy “Soulmate Love” – or to help you rediscover him if you two are already married. Working with a range of African American women and men, couples, marriages and blended families, he has learned firsthand that it is never “to late to live happily ever after.”
