Blocks to Peaceful Parenting – Triggers


The Art of Parenting: Non-Defensive Communication

Barbara Olinger and Open Temple present the next workshop in our Parenting series:

The Art of Parenting: Non-Defensive Communication

Our ability to connect with others decreases when we react defensively, often not even realizing it. Power struggles begin, leading to continuing conflicts without resolution. We will explore why we get so defensive, types of reactions, understanding non-defensive approaches, and specific exercises to help us practice non-defensive responses.
