One Hour to Better Relationships – Part 1 (4 Part Series)
March 1 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
The following series consists of four ONE hour parts. There will be a 10 min Q & A session at the end of each workshop. The final 15 min are reserved for personal time where participants can talk to team COMPASS one on one!This workshops is meant to help you improve your relationships. I have included what I consider to be some of the fundamental aspects of relationships. I have built-in practical examples and exercises that demonstrate how you can apply the theory and techniques that I have discussed, in your everyday life!
Part 1: (March 1st, 7pm – 8:30pm) – Room, 521
Cognitive Distortions: What are they, how do they affect relationships, and how can we challenge them? These biased interpretations, which have been reinforced over a lifetime, often lead to negative thoughts and emotions. Why discuss these tendencies? Because we all have them and they have a negative impact on our relationships.
Part 2: (March 15th, 7pm – 8:30pm) – Room, 521
Attachment Theory: How Attachment Styles Impact our Relationships. Childhood experiences become internal “working models” or “core beliefs” (about the self, others, the world, and the future). Once learned, these models will will carry these models forward and continue to re-enact them in all their relationships.
Part 3: (March 29th, 7pm – 8:30pm) – Room, 208/210
Assertiveness and Effective Communication in Relationships. Being able to express ideas, emotions, and to set personal boundaries are some important factors when it comes to establishing and reinforcing positive self-concepts and self-esteem. We would assume that being assertive in a relationship is a good thing, right? The answer might surprise you!
Part 4: (April 12th, 7pm – 8:30pm) – Room, 521
Psychological Flooding and Relationships. Physiological state in which, due to a perceived threat, our nervous system goes into overdrive. In this state, we lose some of our capacity for rational thought. In relationships, this can often result in those ‘lovely’ fights, where one or both partners in end up getting hurt.
