Mediation and Group Meetings
Watch the video to learn more about how the Rescue Dynamic affects relationships.
"Conflict isn't inherently bad. It helps us find our voice, our preferences, our needs and to differentiate ourselves from the people around us. As David Schnarch says, relationships are 'human growth machines.' When we ask for what we want, regardless of the solution, we stand in our power."
Skills for Change Mediations and group meetings offer people a safe space to share their feelings and stories, ask for 100% of what they want 100% of the time and negotiate new agreements. In Skills for Change Mediations we focus on couples, families, friends, community organization leaders, work teams and group members learning skills they can use to make their relationships more cooperative, healthy and satisfying.
We often schedule longer sessions, so we have enough time to hear from everyone, create a shared analysis that shapes our work, and negotiate new ways of being together. We identify differences in power, learn tools such as the Rescue Dynamic, Pig Fighting, and Clearing Held Feelings and Stories, and practice the changes we hope to achieve through embodied standing and movement practices.
Unlike traditional therapy, in Skills for Change Coaching we are more focused on the future than the past, and we practice co-creating our relationships in real time. When we change how we interact, conversation by conversation, we change the fundamental nature of our shared experience.
