NEURODIVERSE COMMUNICATION TRAINING

Loving Couple

Communication​

 

But I never said that!""

I heard you say that!"

I don't know of ONE neurodiverse couple who hasn't had this type of communication discrepancy.

Why do we feel like we are speaking different languages? What hijacks our ability to communicate effectively?

 

The root issue is: 

 

 "We don't see the world the way the world is...we see the world the way WE are".

 

We will continue to miscommunicate until we become aware of our different COMMUNICATION STYLES and the fact that we actually speak and listen behind FILTERS.

In the video on this page, the speaker breaks down communication styles into:

  • Logical vs. Emotional

  • Concrete vs Abstract

  • Absolutist vs. Relative

  • Avoidant vs Insistent

The speaker walks you through four strategies to address these differences as well. 

Furthermore, our filters include:

  • our expectations and stereotypes,

  • wounds or defensiveness,

  • past experiences, and

  • our mood at the moment.

All of these factors seriously color the way we hear things and express ourselves.

Our therapists are all equipped with special tools to support you as you learn to communicate across the neurodivide.
