This webinar is intended to provide couples with powerful tools to communicate more authentically with each other, to repair an argument quickly and to shift to more productive dialogue that can lead to mutual understanding and solutions. Some topics we will cover include:
How to handle conflict better and why learning to "manage conflict" in your relationship is often a more achievable goal for most couples than not having conflict.
Four common patterns of interaction during conflict that are highly predictive of relationship breakdown and how to avoid them.
Tools for self-soothing and repair when emotions become heated or when all you want to do is fight or flee.
A communication blueprint that couples can use to discuss and work through areas of disagreement as they come up. This blueprint includes core communication strengths for expressing yourself in a way that is authentic, honest and affirming, and for listening with a more open mind and heart.
Practicing these tools can help you learn how to handle disagreements so that they become an opportunity for a deeper understanding of one another rather than a destructive force in your relationship.

This webinar is a follow-up to Core Communication Strengths: Part 1. While it builds on concepts we cover in Part I, it is not necessary to have taken the previous webinar to benefit from this one. This webinar will focus on how you can improve your communication by expanding awareness of the following parts of your experience:
Your triggers or raw spots that evoke strong emotional responses to various issues and circumstances and how these raw spots often have a history that shapes them;
How feelings and emotions bring energy and connection to communication on the one hand or lead to self-protection and withdrawal on the other hand;
The "stories" you write in your head about why you and your spouse behave as you do and how these "stories" influence the way you talk and interact with each other;
Your underlying dreams, goals, wants and needs that motivate you to take certain actions; and
How you move into action during a conflict discussion in ways that either makes things worse or better.
You will be introduced to a constructive process for debriefing rocky moments that happen between you and your spouse using your awareness of these elements in a way that helps you both to feel heard and to repair your relationship and move forward without merely sweeping regrettable fights under the rug.
Date:*** This webinar has been rescheduled to June 29, 2017. It was originally scheduled for June 1.***
