Event: March Gathering: Strengthening Your Relationship with Your Partner

March 8, 2021 @ 7:00 pm

Couples have been confined at home together for months, facing a variety of pressures in these uncertain times. Even those in relatively stable relationships may be facing more conflict and disconnection. The quality of our relationships impacts our mental, emotional and physical health, so it’s imperative now more than ever to keep our connections strong. Fortunately, relational skills are teachable!
Meredith Janson, LMFT, will cover specific strategies for couples:
-Learn to communicate without criticism, listen without judgement, and connect beyond differences
-Identify how you and your partner react to stress differently
-Banish negativity and criticism
-Expand your strengths as a couple through daily affirming rituals
Bonus: The communication tools we’ll discuss can be practiced as a family, which will positively impact your children’s social-emotional development.
Meredith Janson is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and certified Imago Relationship Therapist based in Berkeley, California.
