Re-evaluating Relationships post-Covid
Free for Members
The last two years have been difficult for all of us. Restricted freedoms and incredible stress have contributed to considerable mental illness and related issues, including damage to our relationships. One of the biggest challenges has been differing beliefs have been splitting families, friends, and communities as people respond to stress differently. Polarizing concerns range from infringement of rights over responsibilities for protecting the community, science vs opinion, fragile health systems and economies, isolation, financial woes and change of environmental structures, like workplaces and schools. This polarization has added to our already negative thoughts and behaviour. For decades, we have been spoiled by the perception of a relatively safe world. As we see our ‘control’ evaporate, it’s very easy to become confused and overwhelmed. This course is for anyone as we take an honest but compassionate look at ourselves and our relationships using Emotional Intelligence and other programs to understand our stress, stressors, and our responses to others. Being able to recognize when things are not going well, identify and control our emotions. Having the tools to correct or eliminate unwanted communication or behaviour makes a person emotionally intelligent.
