Speaker Series: Inspiring Healthy Families

Creating a Peaceful Family

with Steven Parker, LMFT

Common to all families is the desire to have kind, loving and peaceful homes. Couples want to have loving relationships in which they believe their lives are enriched as a result of the other one in it. Parents want their children to be happy, healthy and successful. Yet, with the best of intentions, people develop habitual patterns that lead to struggle. For over 40 years Steve Parker has successfully helped couples, families, and individuals change their lives for the better. In his talk, Steve will be sharing the wisdom gained from his work. You will learn how to interrupt those all too familiar patterns that keep the same struggles happening over and over again. You will learn to address relationship issues in a calm and respectful way rather than by being emotionally reactive. You will leave equipped with practical and concrete ideas of how to create more of the family you want.
