Three-Day Accelerated Marriage Counseling (AMC)™Three-Day Accelerated Marriage Counseling (AMC)™ includes all of the topics, instruction, and counseling projects in the Three-Day Marriage Clinic™, but is completely private: you, your partner and the counselor (Karl Elkins) only. No group sessions are included.

The Three-Day Accelerated Marriage Counseling (AMC)™ teaches the 25 Essential Marriage Skills privately, and offers all of the same benefits and advantages of the Three-Day Marriage Clinic™, but with the following differences:

  • Completely private: no group sessions
  • All counseling activities and hurts resolution is done with counselor, not alone (only three people in the room: husband, wife, and counselor)
  • Meets in the Christway Counseling Center offices, not hotel conference room
  • Meets 18 hours (on average, assuming good attendance and participation).
  • Meets over the course of three days (six hours a day), allowing more time for couples to work on projects together
  • More likely to be covered by insurance
  • Cost is $3150 ($175/hour session x 18 hours)

For a complete description, key benefits, and a list of instruction topics, please reference the Three-Day Marriage Clinic™ page.
