"Getting It Together"
Family Dynamics at Home (& at Work!!)
A Dual Training for Creating Healthy Relationships & Teams

FORMAT:
Lecture and Discussion- Participants are encouraged to make the workshop more relevant to their concerns by asking questions.

DESCRIPTION:
Focus is on creating practical understanding of both the intrapersonal (you), the interpersonal (others), and the system issues that can lead to tension, stress, frustration, and eventually, moral problems, low productivity, and dysfunction in the family, agency, program, or workplace. Dynamics of the family and of the workplace are compared and contrasted to foster greater understanding and health in both areas. Addressed are the family (or staff's) emotional and psychological needs as part of the family (or “workplace family"). Theories of role definitions, system theory, communication, temperamental differences, and psycho-emotional needs are combined to create understanding and to lead to practical strategies for resolving dysfunction in the family and workplace.
