Interpersonal Communication FREE Workshop Supported by City of Armadale

June 4 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

**CULTIVATING FRIENDSHIP**

Three 2 hour workshops in the art of cultivating friendships.

**Overview**
In this 3 workshop series on Cultivating Friendship you’re invited to join a welcoming, inclusive group where you’ll be guided in discussions, reflections, and provided with conversation prompts in honing your interpersonal communication skills. Practice being both a compassionate listener and speaker as you explore particular conversation prompts to help in sparking new, or reinvigorating old, friendships.

**Weekly Workshop Themes**

**Workshop 1: The Art and Science of Friendship – 21 May 2024**
In the first workshop you learn about the science of loneliness and the impacts on health and wellbeing. Hear a story about the physical and mental health benefits possible through sustaining quality connections. Learn about the role of empathetic resonance in connecting with others and explore the three kinds of connections that support quality relationships.

**Workshop 2: Interpersonal Communication Skills – 4 June 2024**
In this second workshop you’ll be invited to explore the mindsets that support quality, open and generous conversations. Be guided in the art of mindful interpersonal communication where you have the opportunity to learn how to be present and responsive in conversations. And learn about the art of welcoming, friendly body language versus the type of body language queues that signal “do not approach.”

**Workshop 3: The Art of Friendly Conversation – 18 June 2024**
This third workshop offers an opportunity to practice your conversational skills. For this we draw on research around cultivating high quality relationships and the four categories of friendliness that can help inform the types of questions we ask that help in getting to know others. This is a great way to alleviate fears around starting a conversation.

**Befriending Workshop Series**

As a way to grow strong connections with people from your local community, this workshop forms part of a series that expands out across 5 months. The series includes 9 seperate workshops held fortnightly. In the week between each workshop you’re invited to come back and join those you’ve met at A Place To Connect, a less formal connection opportunity. You can choose to come to as many of the workshops as you wish.

Each Workshop and A Place to Connect will be advertised on MeetUp and through the City of Armadale’s website on their events page.

*This workshop series is supported by the City of Armadale and held at Novelli Pavilion in Piara Waters.*
