Communication patterns play a huge role in our close relationships and our ability to express concerns, needs, and wants. Children often learn communication skills from their caregivers by how we respond and communicate with them and can experience increased self-esteem when they feel heard and understood. Join CHI St. Joseph Children’s Health in our Family Communication workshop that will help you learn the impacts of different communication styles and will provide opportunities to engage in learning activities that can be utilized to help improve communication skills amongst your family. A list of common household items recommended for the activities will be provided with your online virtual class link.
