About the Event
After an argument, are you left feeling like nothing you said was really heard? Do you ever feel embarrassed looking back on how you acted during a conflict with a friend, family member, or significant other? Do you get the sense that you’re having the same fight over and over, and nothing changes? Unfortunately, these experiences are very common! Good conflict skills aren’t typically taught in school, and many of us don’t learn them at home, either. The good news is, it’s never too late to learn, and once you know them, they’ll be useful in lots of situations.
Making habits of good, clean fighting skills can keep conflicts contained and productive. Understanding the natural instincts of your body and brain will not only explain why you do what you do in conflict, it will also help you recruit your strengths to do better in future arguments.
After attending this workshop, you will better understand the way you have historically responded to conflict, feel increased compassion for yourself and your “adversary”, and most importantly, know how to fight in a way that feels more controlled, contained, and constructive.
