Webinar Description:

In this webinar, Dr. Lisa Firestone will explore collaborative communication as a powerful tool for couples to gain a deeper understanding of the other and achieve more balance and closeness in their relationship.

Many of our relationship problems come down to the way we communicate. In order for two people with two completely different minds and two complex personal histories to live harmoniously, there needs to be a certain amount of balance and understanding. Collaborative communication offers a pathway to achieve just that.

Collaborative communication focuses on all the ways we give off information to another person, many of which we aren’t even aware. It outlines a series of steps you can take to draw your partner out, understand from their perspective, and align your state with theirs. It also provides you with methods to express your perspective in a manner where you are more likely to be heard.

By enhancing the ability to communicate with more vulnerability, openness, and empathy, couples can form much stronger relationships where each person feels known and understood by the other.
