Unique: We combine both sociological and psychological knowledge to provide the most effective ways.

Practical: The skills we share during the workshops can be applied right away with immediate results.

OUR STORY

Our story begins with our philosophy that:

IT IS EASIER TO PREVENT RELATIONSHIP PROBLEMS THEN TO FIX THEM

                                                                                                                                        Isik Aytac, PhD

With this goal in mind, Relationship Skills, LLC was established by Isik Aytac, PhD., a professor of Sociology, specializing in Sociology of Family and Gender Roles.

“For many years, I taught sociology of family, gender roles, social problems and research methodology courses at universities. I also conducted my nationwide and international research, and published in top scientific journals (go to publications).

Now I am ready to go beyond the university campuses and share my knowledge/expertise with a wider community, because it is easier to prevent relationship problems than to fix them. And, if problems arise, it is easier to cope with them with the right tools and skills.”
