Communication is the thread that holds families together.
Families that communicate well are closer to one another, function better and solve problems more effectively. But within the hustle and bustle of modern-day family life, it’s often challenging to communicate with our loved ones at all – much less communicate well with them. This holds true whether it is parents communicating with their young children, or adults with their aging parents, siblings or spouse.
What does healthy communication look like? Most importantly, how can we ensure that we communicate well within our families? Lynne Knobloch-Fedders, PhD, a family psychologist and clinical researcher, has spent the last decade studying effective family communication. In this Circle of Knowledge event, she will share what she has learned, including tips and strategies to promote successful communication.
This event is on Thursday, May 8th at 6:00 p.m. at the Jackson Junge Gallery in Wicker Park, Chicago. The cost is $35 ($25 for Family Institute alumni) and advanced registration is suggested as space is limited.
