ABC of Building Healthy Relations

Addicts during their drug use are finally left with little or no relationship with their family, positive friends, society, neighborhood and not even with their pets. During their treatment residents and their families always talk about how to make them value and mend their relations? Will they ever be able to understand and correct their perception towards people? And will they ever have healthy relationships?

To start an effective discussion and try to find answers on this subject, Shafa invited Mr. Neil Paul, expert speaker and eminent professional on anger management, marriage counseling and relation building. He started with quotes by famous people on relationships, classification of relationships, their need and the most important thing, “what do we mean by healthy relations?” In the answer he gave 3 keys to healthy relations which were Communication, Trust and last but not the least Respect ,which should come from  both ends.

Residents were very excited and enthusiastic during the presentations. In the end, lots of questions and doubts were put up by the residents, which were clearly answered by the speaker. Members seemed very relaxed and satisfied after the session. Some of the residents commented that they really realized what they had lost in their past due to their misbehavior and addiction.

  1. Mr Neil Paul has given a reality situation
    where a person gets isolated despite of having
    vast family and friends circle.

    If a person realizes actually what he has missed all these years, family friends,open air.,
    part of changing world around , he can be a guide to others.

    Shafa should invite such experts often

    This is the right approach, is int it???
