Relationships are Better with Safe Conversations
“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
“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
“This entire process has changed the way I approach not just my wife but how I approach others. I have been using these tools for about four months. It is life-changing. It is the only thing I have ever done that has helped me express myself.”Dan
“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
“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
