Thank you for joining us for our August 13th Empower Women event, Effective Communication; How to Listen & Talk in Regular Conversation. In this workshop, Jody Comins, MSW, Divorce & Family Mediator presented three types of listening skills- empathic listening, macro/micro aggression (verbal and non-verbal cues) and listening for listening. Participants experienced verbal and non-verbal cues in an exercise with another participant, learned about narcissistic conversationalism, how to listen and be heard in every day conversation, and worked on communication skills.
