Conflict Resolution 101

A workshop presented by Claudia Apfelbaum, LCSW

Most relationships are fraught with conflict. There is the feeling of a lack of understanding between the two people involved.

Who can stand not being understood over the long haul?

Most of us did not learn conflict solving skills. Home life is often filled with yelling or commanding styles of communication. Or silence.

It is possible to do it differently!

At this workshop, participants will learn basic conflict resolution skills.

The workshop will include:

  • Learning a structure for conflict resolution
  • Practicing conflict resolution skills
  • An opportunity to talk about conflicts in their lives

Workshop date: March 25th, 3-5pm. Cost: $25 per person. Capped at 12 people.
