DescriptionChoosing to STAY-- reThinking Communication: Relationships of all kinds can try our communication skills as we struggle to feel heard.
Who: 18+, Photo ID required
This introductory/intermediate level workshop is about coming together to share frustrations, ideas, and skills for healthier communication. Perhaps you can't get your message across without feeling
unsupportive, or encountering defensiveness. Maybe you want some space in the relationship for your feelings to be heard, and your efforts to get that time end in frustration for both of you. Maybe you or your loved one get so worked up, you just give up trying to talk. You will leave this session with practical tools and examples for more loving
and effective exchanges, even in the face of stress. All sexual orientations, genders, and relationship dynamics welcome. The last 30min of the workshop will be an opportunity to practice skills and get Kristen's one-on-one input.
Participants are advised to bring paper/pen to this workshop, but it is not required. There is no requisite skill set for this workshop.
Fee is $20 at the door.
