Relationships take work, and successful relationships take work and a deep understanding of self. Communication, how we handle conflict, and expectations for relationships can be different from person to person.

Whether you are in a relationship, just really want to be, or can’t figure out why your relationships fail, exploring your personal attitudes to relationships can help you have more meaningful partnerships.

During this interactive workshop, you will gain insight into how personal stress, communication styles, and conflict affect our relationships, and how our families of origin influence our expectations.

You will learn about common communication pitfalls and gain skills in assertive communication, active listening, and conflict resolution. Additionally, you will gain clarity on what is a healthy or unhealthy relationship.

This workshop, led by Erica Pinney and Susan Haarman, is open to anyone—committed or single—who is looking to deepen their self-understanding in relationships.

Erica Pinney is a counseling intern at the Replogle Center for Counseling and Well-Being and completing her masters in community counseling at Loyola University Chicago. Over the last decade Erica has worked in the field of domestic violence and is committed to helping adults understand their relationship to themselves and to those they love.

Susan Haarman is a counseling intern at the Replogle Center for Counseling and Well-Being and is completing her masters in community counseling at Loyola University Chicago. Over the last decade Susan has worked in campus ministry and loves helping others find out how to have healthier, happier relationships.

Spiritual Life Coaching

Spiritual Life Coaching, also referred to as spiritual direction, seeks to awaken us to the presence of the divine or sacred in our lives. A spiritual life coach or director is a companion on the journey of discovering how God or the transcendent is present in our day-to-day lives, as well as in moments of prayer and meditation. Spiritual Life Coaching is open to persons of all faith traditions who seek to deepen their relationship with the divine, to know their true self, and to be in right relationship with others.

To arrange for a spiritual director, call the Center at 312.787.8425.
