Ep. 19 : Conflict – Leaning In with Beth Kershner & Stephanie West

Truth be told, conflict done well builds the greatest intimacy and trust within relationships. But who likes conflict? Lawyers and... hmmm....? Most avoid conflict due to time, their experiences in their family-of-origin, the differences in hardwiring, and lack of modeling. Many of us have a false idea that having no conflict is a good thing when actually it means we are not getting beneath the surface or learning through practice. Others like the energy of the debate but lack tools to bring a healthy resolve. Join Terra, Beth & Steph as we have a candid conversation around navigating conflict well. When we lean in, we risk building healthier relationships with our spouses, our children, our friends, colleagues, courageous girls groups, and more. Terra has been a licensed marriage and family therapist helping thousands navigate conflict for years. She is joined by her friends and Courageous Girls colleagues, Beth and Steph, who together are helping hundreds of women and their daughters navigate the variety of conflict that arises through the journey of childhood, adolescents, and into being a woman. If you want more on the topic of conflict, then consider partnering with Courageous Girls as a CG Supporter and get exclusive content, like part 2 of this dialogue!
