Communicate Authentically: Replacing Anger
with Empathy

Join us to consider how expressing our anger, through
compassionate communication, can serve as an invaluable
relapse prevention tool. We are acculturated from birth to judge, make demands of and diagnose one another. This approach and language hinder true connection and generate pain, resentment and anger. We will discuss how to use communication skills to get our needs met in a compassionate, empathetic manner.
