Big Picture Partnering Couples Module
Jacquelyn B. Fletcher, Author of A Career Girl's Guide to Becoming a Stepmom

“I have been reading your Big Picture Partnering approach and have been so impressed with the voice, the style, the writing, the approach….it’s all very “Dr Jan,” at once helpful and graceful, inspiring and commonsense. Just a killer combination of qualities. It is going to do SO well and will be my wedding gift of choice to my children (even with no wedding in sight!) and my friends’ engaged children. Such good and solid advice! Well done”.



Andrea, Coaching Client and Mother of 3 Young Adults

“Dr. Hoistad shows couples how to move from a relationship that works to a relationship that rocks! Most loving couples want a relationship of partners, but the skills for nurturing and encouraging the healthiest and most exciting of relationships are not skills we’re born knowing. Dr. Hoistad leads us through them, step by step, helping couples identify the differences between being a true partner and being less than adult.”


Pamela Nettleton, Author of Getting Married When It's Not Your First Time and How to Live with a Middle-Aged Man

“Super helpful guide to long-term partnering! Both my fiance and I read the book and explored the exercises. This is written in a way that is clear and easy to understand. We liked the step-by-step guidance of how to stay in our Healthy Adult in conversation with each other about a variety of topics. We found the structure to be really supportive to our partnering process with each other — but also with other people in our lives. We especially appreciated the numerous examples and anecdotes about real couples who mirrored our own questions and challenges. It is clear that author Dr. Jan Hoistad is drawing on a wealth of knowledge and experience with couples. Have already recommended this to our family and friends!”


Karen and Paul, Newly Engaged, 2nd Time Around

“I found the Big Picture Partnering approach to be very uplifting. You won’t spend time allocating responsibility for the problems in your relationship, but will instead focus on building positive and useful ways of paying attention to one another.”


Laila Walters, Recently Divorced, Doing it Right Next Time

“This is a warm, practical, and easy-to-follow guide that I recommend to all individuals and couples. If you’re feeling stuck, hopeless, or looking for a way to make a good relationship great, Big Picture Partnering is for you.
