Mental Health Monday The Art of Compassionate Listening

Please join Elizabeth Vander Kamp, Certified Facilitator of Compassionate Listening, and artist in residence of AIM, to learn on the ground tools for listening better. Listening is an art and a skill. Through awareness and practice we can all become better listeners. In this VMHM, we will explore the five practices of Compassionate Listening and discuss ways to apply those practices in all aspects of our lives.
