> Oct. 5-- Communicating More Effectively In Challenging Situations: A Workshop for Caregivers of Adults (age 60+) from 8:30am to 12:30pm at Ku'ikahi Mediation Center. "How can you talk with your siblings about mom’s finances?" asks workshop instructor Elizabeth Kent. "Or ask your grandfather if it may be time for him to stop driving? Or tell your family doctor that you don't like talking about your spouse as if he's not in the room? Knowing when to bring up uncomfortable topics--and how to express your thoughts and feelings--is a challenge." In this interactive workshop, learn some useful communication tools to enable you to share your concerns so people will hear you. This four-part process includes how to: ready yourself to have a productive conversation; explore the other person's readiness and willingness to listen; plan your logistics and approach; and have the conversation using powerful and effective "I" statements. Elizabeth Kent, J.D., has helped people and institutions find solutions to sticky problems for over 25 years. A trained facilitator and mediator, she teaches graduate classes in conflict system design and negotiation at UH-Manoa and a variety of conflict resolution skills classes around the state. Pre-registration required. The suggested contribution for this caregiver workshop is $20 (no one turned away for lack of funds).
