Tools to Care For Yourself in Conflict and Stress

Workshop Description:

Stress and conflict are at epidemic levels. They are also intertwined, one feeding the other in an indistinguishable cycle. This workshop is intended to help you break the cycle and deal with those times when you lose hold of yourself. A better understanding of what happens in stress and conflict is combined with tools to help with self-regulation to re-connect to yourself. Changing your state changes your traits and positively impacts you, your team, organization and world.

In this workshop, you will learn:

  • How to strengthen yourself for resilience in stress and conflict
  • The key beliefs that keep you stuck in conflict and stress and which ones strengthen your connection to yourself
  • What are brain states and which ones to be aware of
  • How to use mindfulness to identify brain states for self-regulation
  • Which tool to use to self-regulate and create joy, depending on your brain state
  • The importance of repair in restoring relationships
