Expert Message Prep
Know what you want to say before you say it.
When you have something challenging to say, the Expert Message Prep worksheet will help you organize and prepare your thoughts prior to initiating a difficult conversation with your partner. It is useful for exploring what matters to you, for identifying the best way to approach an issue, and for knowing how to approach the things that need said.
Preparing an expert message is very helpful to complete prior to talking with your partner. It will help keep communication healthy during situations that tend to turn into arguments and/or shutdown behavior.
Highly recommended to use with The Meaningful Encounter, Pause Competency, and Rupture 911, but can be used as a stand alone.
