Any relationship can be transformed. We can show you how.
When you CONNECT with others, then you can COMMUNICATE. We'll show you how to begin sentences so the conversation doesn't blow up and how to respond in ways that provide safety. In the end, you'll be able to discuss difficult topics without fear or conflict.
Conversations have the power to change the brain.
The practice of Safe Conversations® integrates the three brain lobes and balances the two brain hemispheres making it possible for people to talk without criticism, listen without judgment, and connect beyond differences. This creates a safer world where everyone thrives.
Safe Conversations® is best learned in interactive workshops
Workshops are offered throughout the year, led by Safe Conversations trainers in various locations.
You'll hear about brain science, personality types, and even how experiences from your past influence the way you now interact with others. Then you'll learn the structured dialogue process changing relationships around the world and immediately have the opportunity to practice with a partner.
Safe Conversations® was co-created by Harville Hendrix, Ph.D, and Helen LaKelly Hunt, Ph.D. They’ve taken their experience working with couples for 40+ years and simplified best practices so your relationship can stay strong in any situation.
Harville appeared on Oprah 17 times as her relationship expert. Helen was inducted to the Women's Hall of Fame for her leadership in the global women's movement. Together, they have authored several New York Times best-sellers including Getting the Love you Want, Keeping the Love you Find, and Giving the Love that Heals.
The Next Step in Human Evolution
We are aiming for a relational culture in which relationship is the primary value, equality is universal, difference is celebrated, and all conversations are safe and collaborative.
“Our two oldest are adopted and have a history of trauma. Mirroring is one of the Safe Conversations tools we use with our children because when they feel heard, it helps to create safety, and in turn, helps them to regulate. This work has also deepened and strengthened our 12-year marriage. It’s always amazing to me what Safe Conversations reveals. Our goal is to really make Safe Conversations a daily habit.”Laura
“Recently, I was in a meeting at work where a lot of complaining was going on. The moment felt right, so I jumped in: “I’ve learned that underneath every complaint is a need that isn’t being met. Can we rephrase our complaints into needs?” Everyone was looking at me like “Wow, what a concept.” One person, and then another, went for it. Safe Conversations really changed the tone of the meeting.”Dalia
“There’s not a day that goes by in my practice that I don’t use SC. For so many couples its a life-changer. They’ve never been taught how to communicate, and they don’t feel safe with each other.”Dr. Bob Breen
“Safe Conversations can be used between husband and wife, parents and children. But more than that, it can be used with your neighbors, between your community and other communities. That is where we need the most healing.”Hind Jarrah
“Attending the Safe Conversations workshop is like cleaning the windows for the first time. You may think your view is great. In reality, you have no idea how much better it can be! Whether family, coworkers, patients, complete strangers, or even my five-year-old son, the Safe Conversations tools make a world of difference.”Malie
