Conflict is about meeting your needs. When you need or want something from another person and that person is not responding to you or is even preventing you from meeting your needs; then you are in conflict. We can offer strategies to navigate through conflict and meet your needs

About the Event
We are excited to have our special guest, Don Schapira, Q.Med.
Conflict is about meeting your needs. When you need or want something from another person and that person is not responding to you or is even preventing you from meeting your needs; then you are in conflict. Conflict is also healthy. Fighting, arguing, disagreeing are all healthy and natural ways to establish boundaries, grow, express oneself and be in a relationship.
How we learned to deal with conflict as children taught us valuable lessons about interacting with others. If the resolution of the conflict is about winning and losing, then seeking conflict can become a tool to gain something, and avoiding conflict is a way of not losing something. From a relationship point of view, learning these lessons in childhood influences future relationships negatively because relationships are about cooperation.
A different lesson that we could learn is how to resolve conflict in a way that repairs relationships, teaches empathy and maintains dignity. Each section of the presentation breaks down into three parts: helping you reflect, identifying an insight, and giving some practice suggestion for you and your partner.
The good news is that only one of you needs to know how to manage conflict. Because we have a tendency to mirror each other’s behaviour, your partner will follow if you lead.
