Discovering Relational Wisdom 3.0

Six Skills that Improve Every Relationship in Life (Faith-Based)

Faith-Based Relational Wisdom

This course provides an introduction to the theology, benefits and practical applications of relational wisdom, which is a biblically grounded form of emotional intelligence.

This training will start you on a journey to improving your ability to read emotions and influence other people, develop greater empathy and self-control, communicate more clearly, resolve conflict, build fulfilling relationships and enjoy a compelling witness for Christ.

These principles have the potential to impact every area of your life, including your family and friendships, church, workplace performance and career advancement.

The course includes six hours of teaching and demonstration videos, interactive quizzes, Bible study, reflection and application questions, and supplemental articles. It typically takes 8-12 hours to complete, depending on how much optional reading and writing you do.

This course is being used in churches, ministries, businesses and seminaries (see a list of training clients), and has been approved for continuing education credit. It is available for individual or group study using a computer, tablet or smartphone.

Although this course is rigorous enough to be used in seminaries and businesses, it is simple enough for parents and children to study together.

Group discounts ranging from 5% to 25% are available through the RW360 Bookstore.

Scholarships are available for active or retired military, law enforcement, fire-fighting and similar first-responder personnel and their families, as well as for students and individuals with limited finances.

Note: If you received a scholarship code from a seminar prior to April 1, 2019, or a pay-it-forward scholarship from a friend who took an earlier version of this course, please email Jeff at jeff@rw360.org for an equivalent replacement coupon.

When does the course start and finish?
The course starts now and never ends! It is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish. You will have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.
How long should I expect to spend on each lesson?
Each of the 8 lessons typically takes 60-90 minutes to complete (8-12 hours for the entire course), depending on how much optional reading and writing you decide to do.
What study pace do you recommend?
We encourage you to complete at least one lesson a week to maintain momentum. You can complete a lesson in a single sitting or break it into 10-15 minute segments spread over a few days. If you need to take a few days or even weeks off, you can jump back in at any time.
Why is a course of this quality so inexpensive?
Comparable secular programs cost from $149 to $2,000. Thanks to our ministry donors, we are able to make our training available at a far lower price ($49) so that it is easily affordable to anyone who wants to improve their relational skills and their witness for Christ. Moreover, we grant scholarships to military personnel, first responders, students and people with limited finances. We also provide special discounts for large groups. In short, we never want anyone to be deprived of our training due to financial limitations.

How can this course enhance what I've already learned at a live seminar on relational wisdom?
If you have already attended a live Discovering Relational Wisdom Seminar, this online course will deepen your learning experience by helping you to evaluate relevant Scriptures for yourself, to read and view additional articles and videos that apply RW to marriage, parenting, the workplace and other areas of life, and to put these principles into practice in all of your relationships.
How does this course differ from the previous 2.0 version?
The course has several enhancements: (1) we shortened the course from 20 lessons to 8 so it can be completed more easily and quickly; this was done by combining and compressing several lessons and by moving all of he peacemaking content into a new course that will focus entirely on conflict resolution (due for release in summer of 2019); (2) we moved to this new platform, which is easier to join and navigate than our previous platform; (3) we broke each lesson into smaller steps, some of which take less than a minute to complete; (4) we created downloadable "Personal Study Notes" documents where you can record your answers to reflection and application questions, which you can keep in one place for easy future reference; and (5) we reduced the price from $79 to $49.
