Speaking Engagements

Current Topics for professional associations, organizations, and businesses include special focus on Dr. McCarthy’s new approach for improving quality of life in romantic relationships and marriage. He provocatively asserts that society is underdeveloped because it has failed to promote education and skills in how to be successful in relationships and in marriage and that harmful self–limiting beliefs set couples up for premature relationship dissolution. He gives a call for action for everyone to place high priority on improving their relationships and offers practical tools to create real change to deeper love and less conflict with Relationship Co-Coaching. Potential topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Help Your Partner Become the Very Best Spouse

Couples Workshop—How To Re-ignite Your Marriage!


Create Rapid Change Over A 2-Day Weekend: Relationship Co-Coaching: A New Approach To Deeper Love, Less Conflict

Which One? Marriage Workshops vs. Marriage Counseling? Often couples worry they won’t get the personal help needed through attending a workshop. However, one study has shown a highly effective marriage workshop has an 86% positive impact for couples attending and equal to six months of marriage therapy. Dr. McCarthy is similarly in the process of measuring the success of his marriage workshops during the next 4-6 months. His 2-day weekend marriage workshop can be a great alternative for couples that want to get started quickly and see relationship change happen as soon as possible. It is also for those pressed for time that find it hard to make that once a week commitment for ongoing therapy sessions. Also marriage workshops can be more cost effective.

Marriage Workshop Goal: This two day workshop is designed to help couples make active, real change in their relationship by making a mutual commitment to meet one another’s unique love needs with unselfish love and learn new skills to resolve conflict and communicate more effectively.

Contact Dr. McCarthy’s office for upcoming workshop dates. Location: lower level South Conference Room (same level as Kincaid’s Restaurant) at 8400 Normandale Lake Blvd., Bloomington, MN 55437 (SW corner of Hwy. 100 & 494)

The purpose of this workshop is to help overcome negative patterns and barriers keeping you from greater love and relationship happiness. Learn to harness the power of altruistic love and reduce conflict. Use the principles of Relationship Co-Coaching to learn to create deeper love, closeness, and emotional connection. Discover new skills to communicate more effectively. Learn to reduce conflict through the Softly Specific Co-Coaching method for discussing issues in a respectful fashion without anger or verbally aggressive behaviors such as accusations, blaming, and complaining.

  3. Self–assess your most harmful Negative Relationship Patterns (NRPs) from the Top 20 common NRPs
