Our Forging New Connections conferences will be taking place this summer across the UK. We are delighted to be welcoming Dr Suzanne Zeedyk to deliver her Keynote speech, Making up is more important than messing up, in Brighton, Newmarket, and Pontypridd.
Suzanne Zeedyk will be speaking on the following:
As human beings, we often suffer from a fear of getting things ‘wrong’, messing up, making mistakes. We strive for perfection, wanting to be a model colleague, the best practitioner, the perfect parent. And nowhere is this truer than in our relationships: we so desperately want to get it right for ourselves and those we care about. And yet, the reality is that relationships are a messy business where mistakes are inevitable.
The good news is that research shows that in any relationship the ‘mistakes’ – the moments of disconnection – matter far less than how and whether we can find our way back into connection with one another. In fact, when skilfully done, such repairs to the relationship actually serve to strengthen the bonds of the attachment. It is repairs that build trust.
In her keynote address, Dr Suzanne Zeedyk will be exploring the nature of this Rupture–Repair Cycle in detail, looking at what the cycle is, how it operates, the barriers to repair and practical ways to overcome them. She will be asking challenging questions that lead us to enquire about our own relationship to rupture and repair, prompting insights that enhance both our personal and professional relationships. She will conclude with a message of hope: it does not matter how many times we get it wrong; what matters is our willingness to show up and connect.
Dads Try the Still Face Experiment
The Rupture–Repair Cycle that Suzanne Zeedyk will be exploring is demonstrated perfectly in the following video. It certainly reinforces the concepts within the Thrive Approach regarding those important connections made in early childhood which solidify trust.
