Basic Family Communications

Basic Family Communication is designed for families who are seeking to improve everyday communication among family members. This educational program emphasizes skill-building for improving family communication and interaction. It is NOT a replacement for families who need counseling or therapy to deal with their family problems. The goal of the program is to nurture in family members the capacity to engage in mindful communication with each other. Mindfulness refers to being fully present when communicating with each other and making communication decisions that take into consideration the needs and circumstances of self and others.
