Session 3 Your Courageous Self - Dealing with Difficult People – The Family Edition

 Sometimes the most difficult people we have to deal with are family members. It could be a parent, or a parent-in-law, the siblings of our partners or the partners of our siblings or members of our extended family. No matter who they are, it seems they know exactly how to push our buttons and drive us crazy. And when we’re dealing with family – everything seems personal. Our family members are who they are and as much as we may want them to be change, they won't. The only thing that we can change is how we see them. 

This lecture will explore how we can avoid falling into the beautifully built guilt traps, or be manipulated into doing things we don’t want to do or end up feeling bullied, belittled or bewildered. And will explore the best ways to remain calm, centred and appreciative in the face of difficult and challenging behaviour so that everyone walks away feeling okay.

Presented by Rhiân Williams, Dispute Management Services .
