Transforming Hardship into Healing
January 18th, 20236:00pm
Discover how one can transform difficult conversations into opportunities for healing.

Health challenges can be daunting. The disorienting and confusing nature of a health issue tends to put a strain on relationships; conflicts, changing roles, shifting expectations, sensitive and uncomfortable topics can all add to the messy mix. Whether in a caring dynamic at home, in a clinical or organizational setting, we may find ourselves having difficult conversations. Many relationships, familial and professional alike, snap under the pressure of disagreement.

There is a way in the midst of challenging circumstances to transform those conversations into opportunities for healing, rather than a source of added tension and exhaustion. This is vital as so much of our pathway to feeling better depends on the quality of our supportive connections.

In this workshop, Joe Weston will guide participants through the murky waters of how to have difficult conversations - how does one bend rather than break in tense confrontations? Whether you’re dealing with, or caring for someone with a health challenge, working in a caring profession and trying to understand how to better relate to peers, or even working towards a shift in your organizational culture, Joe will offer tried and true insights about how to transform hardship into healing relationships.
