Help build strong marriages & healthy families in Singapore
About Campaignends 31 Jan 2016, 11:59 PM
EMCC aims to raise $125,000 to subsidise educational programmes for couples and parents to learn essential relationship-building and conflict management skills.
In 2014, Singapore saw a total of 7,307 divorces and annulments and at least 4,728 children below 21 were involved in these cases (Department of Statistics, 2014).
The workshops that we are raising funds for include:
1. Father-Teen Conflict Management Workshop (FTCM)
Conducted by a team of dedicated father trainers, this workshop allows fathers to openly share and discuss their experiences in handling real-life conflicts with their teenagers. More than 800 fathers (and father figures) have benefited from these since its launch in 2011.
2. The Gottman Seven Principles Programme for Couples (7PP)
This workshop teaches couples how to strengthen their relationships in a variety of ways, including getting to know each other better as friends, solving problems, and cultivating at least five positive moments for every negative one.
3. Bringing Baby Home (BBH)
This workshop prepares couples for the most important job they will ever have: raising a child. Couples learn about transitioning to new roles as parents and handling the stress of caring for a new family member.
Since our establishment in 1997, EMCC has endeavoured to bring hope to broken relationships. We believe the Singaporean society at large benefits from the development of strong marriages and healthy families. For couples and families who want to repair or strengthen their relationships, EMCC uses evidence-based methodologies to help them manage conflicts healthily and improve their relationships. This is done through our range of services: mediating disputes, providing marital and family counselling, and conducting educational workshops. We are also actively developing upstream initiatives towards the prevention and early detection of psycho-emotional and relational problems. EMCC is one of the few agencies with the expertise to be a one-stop centre for relational restoration and wellness. We provide both mediation and psycho-therapy as a holistic and integrated approach to addressing relational disputes or difficulties. EMCC is a full member of the National Council of Social Service (NCSS) and an approved Institution of Public Character (IPC).
