Summary/Abstract: Many parents go through a marital crisis, including some who take part in workshops on education skills. For five years, the author has been leading workshops entitled “Bless Children”. The programme of the workshop is similar to the programme of the well-known in Poland “School for Parents and Educators” (based on the book by A. Faber and E. Mazlish How to Talk so Kids Will Listen & Listen so Kids will Talk), but it also includes Marhsall Rosenberg’s Nonviolent Communication approach and some aspects of Christian spirituality. The author’s goal was to examine opportunities and risks related to participation in the workshops on education skills of parents in a marital crisis. The author used the individual case study method and the participant observation technique, in some cases supported by an analysis of e-mails. The goal of the study was achieved partially, which is why the conducted research should be considered a pilot project. the results allowed to draw practical conclusions, which could be useful for leaders of workshops on education skills.
