Communication Skills

Improving verbal communication helps resolve tension, reduce stress, and avoid misunderstanding in all relationships. Marriages and committed relationships especially benefit from discussing important topics and working through problems. 

Parenting youth is made especially challenging because maturation levels continually change even as your child strives to achieve independence. Being flexible and willing to adjust to those changing maturation levels is a challenge. Tact, respect, and insight into the nature of the evolving relationship are essential to maintain positivity.

Social communication skills are needed to live a life which is satisfying.  Some of the essential communications skills I can teach include:

  • Active Listening
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Problem Solving
  • Understanding Assertive vs. Aggressive Communication Styles
