The RelateStrong | Leadership Series provides videos, workbooks, and other resources designed to help Christian leaders facilitate productive and helpful conversations about difficult topics. We apply RelateStrong’s Pain and Peace cycles framework to address anxiety, addiction, connecting with adolescents, physical intimacy, pornography, marriage, singleness, and self-care.
Healthy and Godly Relationships
Relationship IQ provides a powerful method for talking about relationships with young adults. When we say "relationships," we mean ALL relationships — connections with friends, family, romantic partners, co-workers, professors, roommates and God.
Whether you are a minister within a church, a lay leader seeking to help others build stronger relationships, or a licensed therapist, this video collection can help you better understand how you can use the Pain & Peace Cycle.
The Pain & Peace Cycle, a core framework utilized in Restoration Therapy, is an integral part of Boone Center for the Family Programs — including RelateStrong | Training and RelateStrong | Leadership Series.

Even before COVID-19, three out of four people were experiencing relational pressure of some kind and one-in-three practicing Christians reported dealing with anxiety or depression that has an impact on their significant relationships, according to the study.
