Haven Toolkits in Vancouver
Try something different!
The Haven Toolkits are a great way to introduce someone to the work of The Haven.
The Haven Communication Toolkit
Building Clarity and Connection
Communicating should be simple. Say what's on your mind; listen to the other person. So why can it be such a challenge? How do our best intentions get caught up in spiraling misunderstandings? Join us for a fun and interactive look at how we can trip ourselves up in communication, and how we can do it differently.
The Haven Relationship Toolkit
It starts out innocent enough ... a simple misunderstanding, hardly worth mentioning, a slight difference of opinion, another's habits that go from amusing to annoying. Before we know it we are in the middle of a stand-off with no idea how we got here or how we get out! This one-day presentation will offer valuable insights into how we get stuck in our relationships, and practical ways to un-stick and re-connect.

PLEASE NOTE: 750 Hamilton is not at street level. To find the location, proceed on Hamilton Street between Robson and Georgia. Mid-block, with the Library behind you, you will be looking at a JJ Bean coffee kiosk. To the right of that, you will see a set of concrete steps leading up. Follow those to 750 and dial 110 on the entry phone to be admitted to The Post at 750. As an alternative to the steps, take the elevator in the atrium of the CBC Broadcast Centre at 700 Hamilton Street, proceed past the Security desk to the breezeway. 750 will be on your left when you exit the doors at Security.
