and Communication Skills Commission and based upon the communication
concepts found in FranklinCovey's The 7 Habits of Highly Effective
Families(R) program. FranklinCovey and 10 other Arizona-based organizations
have been awarded contracts to conduct marriage and communication skills
workshops in eleven Arizona counties. FranklinCovey has been assigned to

Arizona State Rep. Mark Anderson, R-Mesa, Co-Chair of the Arizona Marriage
and Communication Skills Commission and Chairman of the Committee on Human
Services, said: "I am excited about the Marriage and Communication Skills
program. It is a way to help strengthen family relationships and improve the
well-being of children. It is the commission's hope that the program changes
the culture of divorce to a culture of healthy marriages and families."
Arizona State Rep. Sylvia Laughter, D-Kayenta, Arizona Marriage and
Communication Skills Commission Member and Chairwoman of Arizona Native
American Affairs, said, "The Marriage and Communication Skills program is an
exciting opportunity to see, over time, whether we can strengthen families
and lower the divorce rate."
Participants will receive an information booklet on family law, covenant
marriage, and dealing effectively with domestic violence that the Arizona
Marriage and Communication Skills Commission created with the help of
world-renowned marriage and family counselor, Roberta Stapley. They will
also receive The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Families book, The Proactive
Family guidebook, and parenting, communication, and marriage resources.
The cost of the workshop is $40 per couple. Parents whose household income
is less than 150 percent of the Federal Poverty Level Standards and have one
or more children at home may attend this training at no charge.
The Arizona Marriage and Communication Skills Program is funded with federal
