What is the course about?

Since childhood we were reliant on others to meet our needs. Yet as we mature and become independent, many of us still carry this childhood desire that others should be available to do things in the way we want them and we get upset when they do not. We can even expect others to read our minds and know in advance what we need. This leads to unnecessary friction and unhappiness in relationships. This course will look at ways we can manage our lives in a happier way with less reliance on others to meet our mental and emotional desires.

This is a live online course. You will need:

- A computer with microphone and camera is best (e.g. a PC/laptop/iMac/MacBook), or a tablet/iPad/smart phone/iPhone if you don't have a computer.
