Mindful communication enhances self-awareness on our genuine presence and intention to understand when interacting with others. Most conflicts in relationships arise due to a lack of understanding and empathy for others.  The integration of mindfulness into our interpersonal relationships helps to create mutual understanding and transform relationships.

Aims of this workshop:

 Through enhancing our mindful communication, acquire better skills to integrate mindfulness practices to counselling clients with Interpersonal Difficulties like couple relationship difficulties, family relationship problems and other relationship issues.  Applying the key concepts of Mindfulness, participants will develop a better understanding about Interpersonal Difficulties from the mindfulness perspective, and explore how mindfulness can help.

Training Format:

Mindfulness practices, case studies, role-playing, group sharing and discussion will be used to enhance learning.
