Agenda Snapshot

  • All About Conflict & Communication Basics
  • The Drama Triangle

Do you argue about the same thing over and over?
Do you feel like you aren’t being heard?
Do you want to learn a new way to finally resolve your conflict?
If you can answer yes to any of these questions, then this is the workshop for you and your intimate partner.

Fussing about the same thing over and over can get old and usually doesn’t move you closer together. This workshop will introduce the idea that conflict is a healthy part of relationship building. You will learn successful conflict resolution skills/tools, discover ways to integrate these new tools into their everyday lives, and incorporate the practice of empathy and self-empathy. You will also learn how to use words to bring life, harmony, healing, and lots of fun to their relationship. You will learn to understand each other’s differences through kindness and how to love your partner in a manner that grows and sustains the relationship.

Meet your Facilitator – Dwayne Patterson

Dwayne says: My passion for people has been exemplified by a 30-year career of service with the City of Raleigh. My passion for healthy relationships has been personified by over 30 years of marriage to the same woman.

I’ve facilitated trainings for residents, leaders, youth, couples and municipal staff on local and national levels. Through decades of listening, advising, programming and leading, each interaction honed my skills and enlarged my sphere of influence. I’ve been able to experience and enjoy 25 years of church leadership, 15 years of teen programming, 15 years of community engagement/public participation, and 10 years of coaching (girls’ basketball & fastpitch softball). I’ve used that experience plus multiple training and coaching certifications to equip me with the education to collaborate with you. Throughout my career, I’ve not only consulted and coached, but I’ve also led change efforts to transform individuals and team/work group culture and performance.

With engagement across a wide range of generations, I’m grateful that every aspect of my work has shared one powerful connection: people. If I’ve learned anything over the years, it’s that investment in yourself and your people will always provide the greatest return of any investment.

In my workshop, participants can expect an honest, authentic and engaging presentation of proven techniques to resolving conflict. Participants will have opportunities to not only gain the knowledge and skills to resolve conflict, but be able to practice the skills and have fun while learning, with the love of your life.
