Conflict & Consequences

Our Health Centre 3769 Trunk 3, Chester NS B0J 1J0

$130.00 per session

Conflict exists in all of our relationships, but especially with our children. Conflict often leaves parents feeling frustrated, exhausted, and guilty as they continue to struggle in the same patterned rut over and over again. Conflict and Consequences is an interactive workshop designed to explore and change your relationship with conflict, by exploring conflict through an attachment lens. We will look at what is driving the conflict in your life, how you are responding, and develop strategies to help you move towards teaching and skill development, rather than focusing on punishment and consequences. This workshop will be offered in a levelled program over 2-4 weeks where each week we explore specific skills that build on each other. This workshop costs $130.00 per week and is payable prior to attendance. To register, and for more information regarding dates, times, and payment options please contact [email protected]
