Safe Conversations Workshop: Part 1

April 20 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Safe Conversations Workshop – Part 1


How to feel valued and connected in all of your important relationships.

Talking is among the most dangerous things people do – and listening the most difficult. This paradox can lead to seemingly insurmountable conflicts in our most important relationships making strong, healthy connections practically impossible.  And, yet our relationships are what matter most to us.  There is an alternative!   Please join us for this Safe Conversations Workshop to begin learning how to talk without criticizing, listen without judging and connect beyond our differences.

Developed by clinical psychologists, Harville Hendrix and his wife, Helen Hunt, in 2010, the Safe Conversations movement has been building momentum across the country bringing these skills into marriages, families, friendships and into the workplace.  By learning to dialogue through our differences, a joyful space can be created where everyone thrives. 

Part 1 will provide the science behind this new way of communicating, demonstrations on how to apply this way of communicating by sharing an appreciation, and introductions to “The Space Between” and the “Zero Negativity Pledge”.  You will have the opportunity to practice these skills so please bring a partner, family member, colleague, or friend.

Come join us and help us make 2019 the year of courageous connections!
