Changemaker Training: “Holding Space” with Jennifer Dean, MACP, LCMHC-S
May 25 from 6:30-7:30 p.m. ET
To be present, open and empathetic is a skill that all of us can use in daily life.
Join Brave Step and Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Jennifer Dean on May 25 at 6:30 p.m. ET to learn the meaning of “holding space” and how to utilize this technique to create a safe space for those you care about. Additionally, she will coach us on how to manage our own judgements while being present and set the tone for a kind, vulnerable and authentic space.
As we support those in our circle who are managing trauma, anger, grief, loss, depression as well as those who feel unseen and unheard, holding space can be an aid in not only building but deepening relationships.
This session is open to anyone interested in learning how to “hold space” and implement it in their lives as a loved one, friend, co-worker, employer, survivor, and beyond.
