Decent Social Skills Presents: Discovering Points of Connection

Date: 
Thursday, February 8, 2024 - 6:30pm to 9:00pm

About Decent Social Skills: Practice being social without worrying about messing up! That's what this group aims to do. We take exercises from various social skills classes we've either attended or come up with on our own and practice together. It's 80% practice and 20% theory. Less lecture, more practice!

About this Session: Let's figure out what we're looking for, what we're open to and what we have to offer and use it gently steer conversations towards potential points of connection.

We will start by taking an inventory of our relationships and identifying the areas we're looking to add to our life. It helps to know what you have room for in your life.

Second, we'll spend sometime discovering the intersection between what we have to offer (skills, experiences, expertise) and what we want to offer. These will usually be passions or interests and will serve as potential points of connection. Finally, we will practice gently weaving in our interests, passions, and other potential points of connection into conversations.

This is a "dry run" event. It's one of the first times we're hosting it. Expect some things to be bumpy or unrefined until we figure out the best format for this event. Feedback and suggestions are very welcome.
