This workshop will focus on one of the damaging communication behaviors in a relationship—"The Silent Treatment".

Couple giving each other the silent treatment
  • If you're suffering in silence—or because of it—your relationship may be more endangered than you realize.
  • Research on healthy communication patterns shows that when one partner withdraws in silence, the harm is both emotional and physical.
  • The Silent Treatment can be a part of a broader communication pattern, not only in adult relations, but also in parenting styles as well.

WORKSHOP OBJECTIVES

At the conclusion of the workshop, the successful participant will learn:

  • How to break the destructive pattern of the silent treatment.
  • Explore why the silent treatment is used so often in relationships.
  • Learn to distinguish between "destructive silence" and "constructive time-out".
  • How to end the silent treatment once it has begun.
  • How to restore a healthy relationship.
