Remember Your Relationship: Managing Stress and Conflict Regulation *Part 2 of 3*

Sunday, December 3, 2017 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM <Add to Calendar>

Designed for both expectant and postpartum parents, this professionally-led series of workshops offers you and your partner proven tools to keep your connection strong while recognizing and coping successfully with the stressors of becoming a family. Both Jewish and Interfaith couples welcome, as are infants up to 4 months old.

The second session will focus on managing stress and conflict resolution. Together, you'll learn how to distinguish between solvable and unsolvable problems, how to deal with emotional flooding, the importance of repair, and a four-step approach to problem solving that just might lead to a breakthrough on an issue where you’ve been gridlocked.
