Resolve conflicts and build better relationships

This week ‘Life Tools’ programme includes two talks:  ‘Resolve conflicts and build better relationships’ will teach techniques and skills to manage difficult conversations more effectively which will, in turn, enable those attending to manage relationships that are important in a constructive manner.  The talk will be on Thursday 11th February at 4.00pm in Palmer room 105. 

All are welcome at this talk which is suitable for students at all levels of study.  This is also a subject area which is particularly relevant to students living in shared accommodation who want to get on well with housemates as well as those graduating this year who would want to show any future employer their commitment to understanding/listening to the views of colleagues.

Here are a few of the comments from students who previously attended this talk:


“A very valuable talk”

“You can apply the information in many situations”

“Very interesting and useful and helps to understand difficult situations better – and handle them better”

“Useful and informative”


On the same day, at lunchtime, there is also an introductory presentation from Counselling & Wellbeing on ways to manage when you feel anxious or stressed.  The short presentation (30 minutes) will be at 1.00pm in Palmer 105 on Thursday 11 February 2016.  This talk is open to all students and is particularly relevant for anyone who wishes to be proactive in getting support and advice or who is thinking about seeing a counsellor or mental health advisor.

There is no need to book a place for either talk – students should just turn up on the day.
