Leader: Jeanne Childs, Board Certified Clinical Geriatric Chaplain

This is a six (6) session program designed to present strategies to communicate more effectively with more positive outcomes.

Mondays April 17 through May 22 from 10:30 am to 12 pm

Much stress in relationships is self-caused! LEARN new listening and responding strategies which may significantly enhance harmony with others as you age. HEAR the difference in more successful ways of responding. PRACTICE using harmonizing responses with each other. And, when you get home, BE AMAZED by the power of your changed mindset and new skills to turn around contentious communication patterns.

This program is held April 17, 24, May 1, 8, 15, and 22.  When you register for the first class, you are enrolled in the full program.  Participants in this program are encouraged to share personal stories and to assure we have a safe space for sharing, we request that you attend all of the classes in the series.

Jeanne worked for many years at The D-H Aging Resource Center. Though now retired, she maintains her certification and volunteers in the community.
