About the Event
The way that we are connected and connect with others can be as fulfilling as solving a puzzle that everyone else got stuck doing. It can also be like a crack on your phone screen that keeps growing until eventually you aren’t able to see anything at all.
We all interact with people and people can be complex – including ourselves! Effective and strong communication skills, and understanding the roles that people take on in relationships are keys to help you build respectful and meaningful connections. By engaging in fulfilling relationships, and identifying the signs of toxic relationships, your stress is reduced and your self-worth is strengthened as you take ownership of your choices.
This Course will help you to:
- Grow your confidence to use effective communication skills for stronger relationships based on mutual understanding.
- Develop practical skills to compassionately grow your self-awareness and to help you increase trust and respect in your everyday relationships.
- Learn a range of mindfulness and CBT strategies* to improve your overall wellbeing.
*Strategies are drawn from Mindfulness practices and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). Mindfulness skills help you to focus on the present reducing the likelihood of worry or snagged by emotions from past experiences. CBT is an established therapeutic approach that helps you to manage and overcome a wide range of issues related to unwanted thoughts, feelings and behaviours.
Who is this Course for:
- Anyone tired of the drama in their life and keen to learn ways to form more meaningful relationships with the significant people in their lives.
- Those looking for better ways to deal with conflict and are open to trying new skills to better respond to challenging situations.
- Anyone 16yrs and over.
Note:Toolkits are focussed on skills practice and are psycho-educational. It is not a therapy group, although we do discuss therapeutic concepts. If you are looking for a therapy group, there are lots of options available on healthpoint.co.nz which is an extensive directory for Aotearoa health services.
Session 1 - Here We Go Again!
"Here we go again!” or “I feel like I’ve been here before!” – have you heard yourself thinking or saying this with certain people in your life. As we begin our course we start with exploring the unhelpful & negative patterns of behaviour in our relationships.
Session 2 - Getting My Needs Met without Manipulation
Exploring and practicing skills to communicate with greater clarity.
Session 3 - Win/Win
Now that we have identified patterns that get us stuck, we explore how we can move forward in our relationships despite the differences.
Session 4 - Building Authenic Relationships
This session is an invitation into authentic relationships where you build on skills already learnt to acknowledge that your needs and perspectives are valid and important. We also add to your skills to validate and honour the needs of others.
