Countering the COVID-19 Aftershock: A Family Systems Reset Webinars

The initial shock of a sudden change requires an equal surge of quickness. Responding quickly keeps negative impacts of the crisis from becoming overwhelming. Even as anxiety and contagions continue, we can flip the switch, by attending to our thinking and awakening our capacity for creative problem solving. Concepts and ideas of relationship systems theory will lead the way. Tap your best thinking and possibilities through an exploration of biblical illustrations, conversation and online resources. Each session is designed for those new to systems thinking and continuing learners alike.
