To continue the theme of preserving your mental health during the holidays, the latest Mental Health site article confronts how to minimize the damage when a conflict arises:
"Conflict Resolution for Families"
Because good intentions arenít always enough, here are some ways to handle and repair conflict at family gatherings. I also urge you to consider new perspectives on old patterns to evaluate whether they still fit with your values and goals, or if itís time for a change.
And if you missed the last one, you might want to review the previous article, which talked about what you can do to head off conflicts before they start:
"How to Prevent Family Conflict"
You may want to share this article with your friends and loved ones. And as always, I welcome your feedback.
Thanks for reading!
