Now that your experience with addiction has ended, there are many issues that need to be aired, heard, and worked on. Practice your verbal and nonverbal communication skills, and your conflict resolution skills before the “big” conversations. Timing for important conversations is everything.
- Allow enough time to get ready, physically and mentally.
- Allow enough time to practice what you have learned.
- Allow enough time for your conversations.
- Allow enough time to evaluate how the “big” conversation went and to plan for the next time.
There are many conflict resolution and communication courses, pick one that meets your needs. Get going today, you’ve got a lot to learn and a lot to share with others.
