Communication in the Family:
Building Authentic Relationships, Reducing Conflict and Encouraging Growth
How do you address the problem of more conflict-than-communication?
Why is finding motivation more important than imposing consequences?
How do you side-step destructive repetitive patterns?
I will be holding another parent group this coming May 23. These are one-off groups for parents with adolescents and young adults.
The main focus of the group is “communication” and I try to keep things fresh, interactive and practical.
New participants are always welcome and need no previous knowledge.
If you have attended this group in the past, this coming group will be a repeat in terms of content but I find that re-attending the group is a good way to lock in skills and ask questions about my approach as it is applied in the family in an on-going, process-oriented manner. Also, I find that due to the improvisational and spontaneous nature of such an interactive group, new and relevant material comes up all the time!
When: Thursday, May 23, 6:30-9:30 p.m.
Where: Trinity-St. Paul’s United Church, 427 Bloor St. West (Bloor and Spadina) in the Fireside Room
What: An positive, interactive, experiential group of approximately 15 participants that includes an engaging combination of lecturing, role-playing and interactive discussion.
The goal: parents will be better equipped to communicate effectively with their children. Focus will be on teens and young adults.
