Embracing Conflict

If you're avoiding conflict, you're creating conflict. Strange, but true. So learn to embrace it.

Conflict, when handled well, can have a surprisingly positive effect on your relationships, including:

  • increased self-confidence

  • a shared sense of courage & commitment

  • an opportunity to learn about your partner's scared self and map your ability to soothe them

  • a deeper understanding of what's truly important to each of you and your relationship

  • less activation around, or avoidance of, conflict over time

This class combines teaching with one-on-one breakout sessions where you and your partner (or if you're single, you and other participant) can practice and gain confidence in the skills you'll be learning. 

Confidentiality is strictly maintained. Although we encourage questions & comments, you do not need to speak in the workshop if you do not want.
