Womens Conflict Resolution Workshop Series
Conflict and anger is natural and normal.
Although we all experience conflict and anger in
our lives, how we deal with it varies greatly from
person to person. Anger can manifest in many
different ways from mild frustration to full-blown
rage and in some cases can lead to acting
impulsively or doing something you are ashamed
of. This is when you need strategies to effectively
express your anger or learn ways to avoid conflict
all together or find a peaceful resolution to conflict.
Often what can cause stress conflict and anger in
women varies differently than men and therefore
it is beneficial to focus on how to manage these
feelings and situations through a female perspective. This workshop series
will teach you how to manage your stress and emotions and how to deal with conflict in a healthy way.
