Webinar Description

We hear about the value of authentic communication, but how do we create an environment that supports it? Grounded in the science of contemplative psychology and relational theory, a communication "green zone" is like a park in the middle of a city where we can set aside time and space to listen mindfully and protect the process of unmasking vulnerability. This webinar explores how to engage in meaningful dialogue with clients and colleagues by creating a communication "green zone."


Objectives

Following this presentation, participants will be able to:

    • identify three features of authentic communication, symbolized as the green light.
    • explain how to recognize and hold steady when communication closes down, symbolized by the red light.

    • describe how to recognize and protect the vulnerable conversations that trigger authentic communication to shut down, symbolized by the yellow light.
