Recognize, understand and handle emotions in an effective, responsible and powerful way. Learn to decode and respond constructively to the emotionally-driven comments and behaviours of family members, friends, colleagues and clients. Develop effective listening skills and avoid the subtle ‘miscommunication traps’ and obstacles to effective interactions. Research findings and applied techniques will be presented. Identify, express and integrate your brain's intuitive and emotional right hemisphere with the logical, fact-driven left hemisphere. This is a hands-on course with lots of practical exercises with fellow classmates. That said, it is not a group therapy experience — rather, the emphasis is on ‘going inside’. Enrolment is limited.
Note: Course withdrawal must occur at least 48 hours prior to course commencement to receive a refund less a $25 administration fee.
