IN PERSON: Do you ever wonder how, why and when your relationship with your adult children changed? Developing and maintaining relationships with our adult children requires us to stop parenting and to listen and communicate differently. It is a challenge. In this course, you will gain an understanding of communication and sensory preference styles, and learn to apply them to minimize tension in your relationship. Research shows that gender and generational differences in communication contribute to potential misunderstandings. Five emotional intelligence competencies will be introduced, and you will gain an awareness of how they impact your relationship. You will practice new communication skills in our safe classroom environment in order to increase your comfort level during actual parent-child communication experiences, and you will come away with new insight on the dynamics of parent-adult child communication. Active, respectful class participation will enhance your experience. | Facilitated discussion.
