Conflict & Communication

Learn how you can break repetitive cycles of conflict in relationships by connecting and communicating in ways that allow you to be seen, heard and validated.  Learn how to listen to understand others and create a sense of safety when discussing sensitive or charged topics.


An important part of healthy relating is knowing your boundaries are and how to respond when they are being crossed. 

Boundaries

Ever heard the saying “good fences make good neighbors”?
Fences are boundaries that divide personal property.  In the same way, your personal boundaries are the limits you place on where you end and someone else begins.  

Healthy Boundaries = Self-Esteem + Genuine Connection.


What might your boundaries be in each of these areas?


  • Physical:  Otherwise known as personal space. This might include your need to lock the door when in the shower.
  • Mental:  Respecting the opinions of others and also having your opinions respected.
  • Emotional:  Protects you from taking responsibility for someone else’s feelings or taking someone else’s comments personally.
  • Sexual: Protecting your level of comfort of touch and with whom.
  • Spiritual: Protects your right to spiritual beliefs and accepts that others have their own beliefs separate from yours.
  • Material: Protects things that belong to you, including personal items and lending money.
