Building Social Courage When Facing Challenging Situations or Difficult People

The Secrets of Effective Communication

Dedicated to anyone who is afraid of conflict and who wants to find more confidence when faced with anger, but traditionally has been tempted to either withdraw, back away or defend themselves; this workshop can make for good and even better relationships. One of the main reasons that we tend to be avoid conflict is that few of us know have been taught the strategic tools to address it effectively.

 

The Five Essential Communication Skills

These Five Essential Communication Tools come from the latest Stanford research (David Burns, Author of Feeling Good Together, Advance Applications of CBT and founder of TEAM Therapy) and provide a “roadmap” to practice which will allow you to learn how to be highly effective in difficult conversations. This approach can help each of us in our most difficult and challenging relationships or friendships or working as therapists, teachers or leaders in business, to find a natural ease when facing anger, ultimately being successful in ways we previously thought impossible.

TEAM therapy states that the core problem in the treatment of relationship problems is the connection between blame, denial and power. As long as we continue to blame the other person and deny our own part in creating or maintaining the problem, we remain powerless in creating positive change in the relationship.
