On today’s episode I’m chatting with Giuliano Valentini about communication and vulnerability. Giuliano facilitates a peer support group and a workshop through the organization Mielen Portti. The peer group is called “Men Talk” and is a safe space for men to openly discuss their struggles, and the workshop is called “Communication Talk” and is centered around non-violent communication.
In this episode Giuliano explains about these two initiatives in more detail. We get to talking about the reason why men also need a safe space to talk about their emotions, how this can be very important as a father as well, as well as how both parents can pass down things from their lineages. Giuliano explains the foundations of non-violent communication and why he thinks it’s a way of life and not just a method. You’ll find out how to register to these two free groups at the end of the episode so stay with us until then.
Before we jump in, I want to mention that June 20th 2022 will be our last episode before a short summer break. As you’ve probably realized, July is a ghost town around here because everyone is out enjoying the 2 minutes of sun we have. Anyways, the next episode after that will be coming out on August 8th 2022. I’m waiting to welcome you back here with a whole bunch of amazing guests and episodes.
