the RISC Challenge


More Love. More Sex. Less Fighting.

Thank you for taking a RISC!

with Christian Pedersen & Sonika Tinker, MSW

Here’s a brief special message to NWTA graduates from Sonika and Christian (watch before you view the RISC Challenge below this)…

Here’s the RISC Challenge – enjoy!

Christian Pedersen & Sonika Tinker, a husband/wife team, will help you understand why your best efforts aren’t working, and teach you new, effective techniques

We recognize that the language in the course is often framed from a heterosexual perspective. This is the experience the instructors bring, and they don’t wish to speak for same-sex couples’ experience. However, Sonika and Christian have worked with a number of same-sex couples through their live workshops and coaching who have found the concepts and tools they teach powerful and applicable.

Your relationship will not get better by itself.

The hard truth is, what you’re doing to make it better probably DOES make it worse. But it isn’t your fault. Or your partner’s. Most of us were never taught what actually makes great relationship work. The fairy-tale model of relationships we’ve been handed is missing some crucial parts. Like how to keep a relationship alive and vibrant after the honeymoon is over, or how to effectively handle the inevitable challenges of day to day life. That’s why “normal” today means a divorce rate over 50%. No one likes to admit their relationship is in trouble, but take this short relationship reality-check to assess yours:

  • You’re stuck. The fire in your relationship may be dying (or dead).
  • In spite of your best efforts, things are getting worse instead of better.
  • Do you keep having the same stupid fights?
  • Is your sex life boring, infrequent, or dead?
  • Do you feel unappreciated or criticized?
  • Are you relieved when you’re apart?
  • Miss having fun together?

If you relate to any of these warning signs, your relationship needs help. It’s that simple. Check out The RISC Course.
