PLS Resolving Conflict Series: Post Holiday Blues
Reflecting on Christmas? Cringing about the challenges of family dynamics over the holidays? Maybe bickering with your siblings over aging parents? Or with your ex-spouse over shared Christmas parenting time? Or even your current spouse about over-spending on gifts?
Join us for a fun and participatory seminar on:
- The dynamics of family conflict
- How to approach difficult conversations
- Tools for dealing with tension and conflict while building agreements
- Where to find support from conflict resolution professionals and other specialists
