FAMILY COMMUNICATION CLASS
Talking is fine. Communicating is way better.

Communication among family members can be so challenging! Finding ways for your home be an enjoyable place for everyone can be especially difficult during this pandemic. People’s tempers are shorter and frustration runs high. Learning to say how you feel and recognizing how other people feel is a valuable way to reduce stress and strengthen relationships.

The tools that you learn through this class can help you communicate calmly and clearly. You’ll discover resources and methods to help resolve situations that may arise between child and parent, parent and parent and child and child.

In this class you will learn to:

  • Shift from making judgements (She’s a jerk) to observations (I see she’s taking my pencils)
  • Clearly state how you’re feeling about a situation (I feel frustrated because I’ve told her to stop several times)
  • Clearly state when you need to feel better (I need respect)
  • Clearly make a request of the other person (I’d like her to put my pencils down)

You’ll also learn how to de-escalate a conflict between two people by:

  • Making an observation (I see you running after your brother)
  • Inquiring about how the person is feeling (Are you feeling really angry?)
  • Inquiring about what the other person needs (Do you need peace right now?)

The class consists of:

  • 8 live one-hour Zoom classes for all of the members of your family (appropriate for ages 7 and up)
  • Activities to do between classes 
  • 2 coaching sessions from Dr. Jenn to troubleshoot and problem solve challenging situations during the 8 weeks of the course

"Thank you so much for helping me and my family increase the peace in our home. We know that how we express ourselves is just as important as what we are expressing. Sometimes our messages were lost because of how we said things.  One of my favorite topics in the class is the Ladder of Influence. My teenage children felt like I was constantly judging them – which was never my intention.  This topic helped me develop my own toolbox of nonjudgmental words to use when communicating with my kids. Now that I am stating what I observe, rather than judging, my kids don’t jump to defend themselves and our family is working as a team. Thank you Dr. Moore!!

FAMILY COACHING
Grow as an individual. Grow together as a family.

Family Coaching considers each individual's needs, wants, and goals and identifies areas that might be minimizing or blocking them from being achieved.  Strategies and skills are then developed that build on each family member's strengths, allowing for more open, respectful and satisfying relationships.

How is family coaching conducted?

Sessions are conducted via video conferencing and are generally 60 minutes. Family members do not need to be in the same location.

What happens in a family coaching session?

While the work done in the coaching sessions builds on each other, each session will generally cover an individual or family goal, perceived obstacles, alternative approaches and exchanges of ideas, questions and concerns.

How many sessions are generally required?

Every family is different, but on average, prepare to commit to 8-10 weeks.

How much does family coaching cost?

Dr. Jenn Moore works with coaching clients on a sliding scale. Details for session rates can be discussed during your free consult.

How is family coaching different than family counseling?

Family coaching

Coaching begins with a goal-oriented perspective. It focuses on the strengths of each family and builds upon them to bring about positive change. Coaches do not diagnose clients or dig into past feelings or behaviors, but rather, looks at what is happening in the family today and what outcomes the family wants to achieve. With family coaching, it is likely that:

  • behaviors are adjusted more quickly
  • conflicts are resolved with more compassion and non-judgement
  • family members participate more because there is less chance of old wounds and blame being brought in
Family counseling / therapy

Therapy tends to begin with a "what's wrong" approach. It seeks to identify and examine problems and unhealthy aspects of the family's engagement. This approach can sometimes complicate the family dynamics or, if not resolved, can even cause further hurt and conflicts. With family therapy, it is not unusual for:

  • one member to be blamed for the family's problems
  • emotions between family members to intensify before getting better
  • one or more members of the family to quit therapy before any real progress has been made
