The best relationships are built on healthy conversations that promote clear emotional and rational connections.
In this training you will learn a simple, yet effective, process for connecting in ways that honor the needs and values of everyone.
The training starts with the I Can Relate Game™ and Process. These tools provide a tangible approach for having conversations with others in a way that is respectful, clear and enjoyable. Using practice situations, participants imagine a variety of ways an issue can be addressed and learn empathy toward all involved in the situation. Participants will learn a number of skills and exercises that promote healthy self-awareness and a technique called, “empathy guessing.” People of all ages will learn how to respond with empathy toward themselves and others. Participants are encouraged to bring their own situations to the training session for personalized support.
“Using the I Can Relate Game and method helped me work through situations in my congregation involving relationships. Dr. Bev’s insights about anxiety and self-awareness were particularly helpful for understanding how to respond in a variety of situations. Her method, combined with using the game, offered a tangible and fun way to explore feelings connected with needs in a non-threatening manner. Developing the skill of empathy guessing provides a solid technique that is relatively easy to learn.”
