Introduction to a Culture of Gentleness
This seminar is designed to provide individuals with a basic overview of a Culture of Gentleness, what it is and what it isn’t. Operating from the assumption that everyone needs to feel safe and valued, we will develop an understanding of how positive supports can lead to relationships that are compassionate and encouraging for everyone.
In this interactive workshop, the foundational principles of developing and strengthening supportive relationships as a strategy to reduce challenges and build a foundation for growth and healing are explored. An introduction to The Central Purpose and The Six Elements will be provided. Emphasis is placed on strategies that can lead to others feeling safer and more valued, how one’s trauma history can influence behavior, planning proactively to reduce stress and challenges, and the value of supporting all involved.
This seminar is perfect for any who receives or provides support.
