Bridging the Gap
So many times there is a “gap” between us and others. It may be because a conflict arises or because we see things differently. Regardless of this, what we do when we experience this gap with others can make all the difference in our relationships and how we navigate conflict.
In this workshop, teens will learn how to stand in that gap effectively and how to resolve conflict. You will also learn how to deal with the gap within ourselves and how to bridge that gap. We may feel stuck and may not be content with where we are and there may be a gap between where we are right now and where we want to be. We will also address breaking the habit of being hard on ourselves and beating ourselves up and instead of being compassionate with ourselves when we do something we regret.
This workshop will help you focus on attaining clarity of what you want and long for, and help you come up with specific strategies to meet your goals.
