Communication & Conflict Resolution
October 7 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Families attempt to resolve conflicts utilizing familiar and comfortable techniques. One common technique is blaming someone else’s behavior for how we are feeling. In other words, if they would only “_________”, then things would be better. What happens in this type of arguing is that the underlying issues are never resolved, and the attempts at resolution create more difficulties. Family members become frustrated at their inability to resolve the conflict and that creates another cycle of blame, anger and frustration. In this session we will explore common themes that cause conflict in families and introduce a simple conflict resolution model. We will then have fun and engaging exercises to show how this model works in everyday examples that families are facing today.
