How To De-Escalate Conflicts

Virtual Mini-Workshop for Couples; From Your Couch, On Your Time

"We go from zero to a hundred, there’s no in between!” So said a woman in our last workshop, describing how quickly conversations between her husband and herself turned into high-volume arguments. It’s a common experience. You start out having a civil conversation about something, but pretty soon, you’re arguing and you don’t even know about what exactly.

When this is a recurring pattern, it’s emotionally taxing and physically exhausting for both of you. Plus, escalated arguments wear on your relationship because …

  • You trust each other less every time
  • You lose faith that you can work out any conflict
  • You get trained to either resign or escalate to get heard
  • You spend too much time with elevated stress in your body
  • You don’t reach resolutions

Over time, you might begin to question if you should even be in the relationship.

But don’t despair yet! Even if you have a pattern of escalating quickly, you can still change it and learn a more calm and productive way to interact and even talk about difficult subjects. When you understand why your conversations escalate, and how to express yourself more effectively, you can begin to co-create a new, positive pattern for communication.

In this mini-workshop, you’ll learn a new paradigm for conflicts, along with a step-by-step communication process. As a previous participant said, “Conflict seems inevitable and your approach to it gives us a sense of peace and gratitude for what we can experience from it.”.

This is a brand new 90-minute mini-workshop from LoveWorks:
