10:30 - 11:20 am Challenging Relationships and Conflict
Even on the best of days, some relationships are challenging and stressful. Of course, we appreciate and accept that everyone has a different personality but certain behaviors, traits, habits, moods and temperaments can bring us to extreme feelings that impact our own mood, disposition and behavior. This gets even more difficult when there is dependence or interdependence with the challenging person, when you have to work with that person or when you sense that something might actually be wrong with that person. Navigating through conversations and activities with difficult people requires skill. Should you say something? If so, what should you say?
Kim Burton, Director of the Mental Health Association of Maryland will address this issue with her knowledge of human behavior and relationships. Kim will provide insight and tips for appropriate approach, engagement and strategies when you are faced with challenges by another person’s attitude or behavior. Program participants will be able to ask questions, discuss and learn from each other and will leave with new skills and understanding.
