A Families Turning™ Workshop

Wednesday, October 5, 2016

9:00 am – 4:00 pm (Registration 8:30)

Presented by

Nancy E. S. Wood, LSW, BSN


About the workshop

·         Do you want a more harmonious relationship with an adult sibling?

·         Do you want a more fulfilling relationship with an adult child?

·         Do you need to have an important discussion with your parents?

Communicating accessible and usable skills to strengthen self-awareness and transform adult to adult relationships is critical as we assist individuals to find function and fulfillment in their family lives. As we leave our teenage years we often leave home and find independence, new friendships, work relationships and perhaps start a family. As we grow older we change and mature emotionally, but this doesn’t automatically translate into functional and harmonious adult family relationships between parents, adult children and siblings.

When these adults in their families come back together emotionally and/or physically, they may want more fulfilling relationships or they may need to attend to important business. But, they find themselves confounded by old patterns that won’t shift even as they work for these changes.

This workshop combines options from many therapeutic modalities to provide practical skills and transformative ideas to help family members turn toward one another emotionally. As professionals we can teach them communication skills and provide directions for conversations and meetings, but without a personal change of heart, these skills and directions are often not very successful. 


Through this workshop you will learn:

1.               1.   Tools to assist clients to understand their emotional relationship network.

2.               2.    Effective and accessible self-awareness tools to understand family relationships.

3.               3.    A framework for personal transformation in family relationships.

4.              4.     Application of usual and new communication tools in a transformed relationship.
