In the same way that each of us has our own distinct personality style and parenting style, we also have our own unique way of communicating love. In any relationship, it is vital to understand how each person demonstrates and receives expressions of love. This course will help you understand Dr. Chapman's seminal work on the five love languages. This enlightening course will help you identify your love language, and provide you with a short assessment to help you understand the love languages of your spouse/partner, children, and those you care about.

This course is based on the book, The Five Love Languages (Northfield Publishing, ©1995) by Gary Chapman. In addition to this book we also recommend, The Five Love Languages of Teenagers (Northfield Publishing, © 2000) by Gary Chapman, and The Five Love Languages of Children (Moody Press, ©1997) by Gary Chapman and Ross Campbell.
