Healthy Communication Tips

I’d be happy if . . . What if that happens? . . . . If only so and so would stop that . . .

Have you ever said any of the above statements only to realize that you cannot be in charge of what other people think, say, or do? Join facilitator Jim Murphy for Healthy Communication Tips as he shares the power of understanding that comes with realizing the only actions and thoughts we are in control of are our own. Jim provides guidelines for checking out our frame of reference and checking our actions with what is healthy vs. unhealthy.
