Christine will introduce the Science of Friendship, or the motivations, behaviors, and skills necessary to make and maintain friends, which are core components of social and emotional intelligence. In her work with individuals and teams, Christine teaches the critical processes of befriending: ways to find common purpose, create solidarity and use the power of interconnection to enhance success in our professional and personal lives. Concepts and practices of social and emotional intelligence can be useful in a practitioner’s personal growth as well as techniques to implement with clients in virtually all healing settings. Christine will offer practical tips to take into your own practice.
