In Conflict Resolution, we explore a critical issue after brain injury – how to transform conflict into opportunities for building trust. We start with skills in choosing and supporting successful behaviors to reduce conflicts. We explore self-monitoring and self-calming practices and learn a variety of communication tools that help build trust during difficult moments. We provide training materials and handouts to use in your home and/or work setting.
