Life Skills


What is Life Skills

Life Skills is a network of more than 200 affiliate centers whose trained facilitators teach the
"Learning to Live, Learning to Love" curriculum. The goal of Life Skills is to help individuals increase
their capacity to function well in relationships and, where possible, to offer hope of reconciliation.
Although originally formulated to address the concerns of families in abusive situations, the curriculum offers tools to enrich and "fine tune" any relationship. Class members, including both married and single adults, are taught how to break the patterns of the past and establish balance in relationships.

Who are we?

South Hills Life Skills Center is a safe place where individuals can come to get tools and learn skills to help rebuild their lives and improve their self-image. We treat every individual with respect and dignity.

How we do it

South Hills Life Skills Center classes are conducted separately for men, women and teens. Our trained facilitators present the "Learning to Live, Learning to Love" curriculum through oral presentation, workbook study, group discussion, videos and other visual aides. Phase 1 of the course is 30 weeks.

What do we do

The "Learning to Live, Learning to Love" curriculum is a 30-week course that provides tools and teaches skills to help break unhealthy or ineffective patterns and provides tools to enhance relationships.
The course helps uncover root issues and beliefs. Painful unresolved experiences from our childhood can cause reactive behaviors in our adult life. Our ability to have healthy relationships is damaged, and some of us sabotage our careers. Ineffective functioning destroys our potential for happiness and success – this causes anger within, which often leads us to express our anger in a negative manner. Life Skills helps us change our old ways, to new ways.

Some of the life-changing skills presented in the course include:

Establishing Roots for a Healthy Family Communications Managing Stress
Breaking the Bonds of Shame Learning to Forgive Developing Trust
Accepting Responsibility Love & Family Bonding
