About this Course

Strengthening relationships using the Vital Relational Functions

Would you like to refine your relational skills? Are you interested in exploring the nuances of human interaction in more depth? Do you want to extend your Thrive practice and build on what you already know? In this workshop, we will be deepening our understanding of the Vital Relational Functions (VRFs) – a central part of how we learn to be in relationship as Thrive practitioners. When we begin our Thrive journey, we tend to see the VRFs as part of our toolkit for meeting the needs of children when they are dysregulated.

The focus of this workshop is on developing and broadening our use of the VRFs so that we can start to apply them in all of our relationships, adapting them according to the person and the context. In particular, we will be looking at the significance of ruptures in relationships when things go wrong, exploring the challenges of these moments and how skilful repair can ultimately serve to strengthen the relationship.

The workshop includes opportunities to practice the VRFs in a safe and supportive environment, as well as space to reflect on your practice and guidance on how to implement your new learning back in your setting.

You will come away from the workshop with:
- a deeper understanding of the VRFs
- practical experience of using the VRFs in action
- examples of how to share the VRFs with colleagues
- knowledge of how to use the power of relationship to greater effect in both your setting and your life
