Can We Talk? Developing Communication Skills to Use During Difficult Times
It’s my partner’s birthday. How do I discuss a celebration with my family? There’s my older daughter who has two unvaccinated preschool children that she worries about; my vaccinated son who is a nurse and could still be exposed to Covid at work; my younger daughter who works in a place where no one wears a mask, and their vaccination status is unknown; and my sister-in-law who is still deciding whether to get vaccinated and wears a mask indoors but not outdoors. How can I make this work?
This is just one example of situations facing families today that creates conflict.
What can we do to restore and rebuild communication within our families? When disagreements exist, how do we create safe environments that empower us to navigate our differences? How do we enable our divided family members to talk to each other? How do we create bridges and tear down barriers?
Please join us and psychologist Dr. Alison Block of Health Psychology Center who will discuss communication problems/issues and the conflict resolution strategies we can apply when our family members disagree with each other.
