Ku’ikahi Mediation Center presents: Communicating More Effectively in Challenging Situations, a workshop for caregivers of adults (age 60+).
How can you talk with your siblings about mom’s health or finances?
How do you ask your grandfather if it may be time for him to stop driving?
Or tell your family doctor that you don’t like talking about your spouse as if he’s not in the room?
Knowing when to bring up uncomfortable topics—and how to express your thoughts as feelings—is a challenge. In this interactive workshop, learn some useful communication tools to enable you to share your concerns so people will hear you.
This Four-Part Process Includes How To:
- Ready yourself for a productive conversation
- Explore the other person’s readiness and willingness to listen
- Plan your logistics and approach
- Have a conversation using powerful and effective “I” statements
Facilitated by Elizabeth Kent, this workshop takes place from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm in Hilo on Thursday, October 5, 2017 and is also being offered on Friday, October 6, 2017 in Waimea via West Hawai’i Mediation Center).
