Talking is the most dangerous thing people do.
We'll help you do it safely.
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.
“I believe Safe Conversations is on the cutting edge. What we want from the future is not going to come from great legislation; it’s not going to come from business; it’s going to come because of relationship.”Reverend Richie Butler
“The simple, straight-forward structure of Safe Conversations can truly be a life-changing platform for veterans and their families, especially for those returning from conflict and who suffer from PTSD. These veterans have often experienced terrible things in defending freedom and they struggle to communicate with their families, the work place, and society at large.”Cary Clayborn
“It reemphasizes something I already knew: that you can have a conversation, even about hard things, without being confrontational. It’s about growing into maturity, learning and practicing, so you can apply it down the line.”Derek
“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
