Quality of Life Grants: 1st Cycle 2009: Coping and Caring
National Multiple Sclerosis Society - Upstate New York Chapter
This grant will help to support Relationship Matters: "8 Hours to a Lifetime of Relationship Satisfaction"—a workshop for couples living with multiple sclerosis. The two-day workshop will focus on effective communication skills, pro-active relationship management, tools for expressing feelings regarding multiple sclerosis challenges, and peaceful conflict resolution strategies. The goals of the workshop are to give couples additional skills to keep their relationship healthy despite the many stresses of living with multiple sclerosis and to bring couples who live with multiple sclerosis together with other couples who are facing the same challenges to reduce the sense of isolation couples may experience. Grant funds will support programmatic expenses, excluding food. This grant is funded through a cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (Award #1U59DD000338).
