Handling Tough Times in Family

2010 Fall

“A family that cannot play together cannot stay together.”
One of the main reasons for the above is the type of communication, or lack thereof, within the family. The quality of communication always reflects the level of self-esteem that each individual brings to the family. It is about spontaneity, creativity, self-disclosure, and risk-taking. When we are not congruent in our communication, then problems of self-esteem, anger and self control and problems concerning unfinished business from childhood become obstacles in building the positive communication in family life.
The workshop is designed for families who are seeking to improve everyday communication among family members. The goal of the workshop is to teach communication techniques to improve the relationships in the family and to nurture in family members the capacity to engage in mindful communication with each other.

We will focus on family connections which start with enhanced self-esteem and how to help individuals to connect to their strengths and internal resources. We will also explore the five types of marriage and show how stable marriages have matched interaction styles and unstable marriages have mismatched interaction styles.

OBJECTIVES
Participants will learn:

• How the quality of communication affects family relations.
• The impact of spoken and unspoken family rules on communication patterns through generations.
• How to handle difficult issues.



INSTRUCTOR:
Nazila Isgandarova is a Doctor of Ministry candidate in Pastoral Counseling and Family Therapy at Wilfrid Laurier University.  She is a Spiritual and Religious Care Coordinator at Cummer Lodge Long Term Care Home (Toronto) and Chaplain at the Wenleigh Long Term Care Home in Mississauga.  She is currently an instructor with the Continuing Education Department of Emmanuel College at University of Toronto.  Nazila is an internationally-published researcher focusing on Islamic spiritual and religious care in a healthcare setting, pastoral counseling in a multi-faith context, and Muslim identity in the West.


WHO SHOULD ATTEND
 The workshop is open to students and adults, 15 years of age and above. It is highly recommended for community leaders, social workers, Imams, parents, student leaders and those who wish to improve communication skills in the family setting.
COST:
$15.00 for adults - register and pay online or pay in-person
$5.00 for students (register online, but pay in person)

Best Apple (iPhone) Deen Apps

by Reem Rahman
The following is a list of some of the favorite Apple applications used by suhaibwebb.com authors as tools to help fill our lives with the light, love, and guidance of Allah (God), Islam, and the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ. Like never before, the Apple iPhone, iPod, iPad and other devices allow for volumes of sacred Islamic texts and teachings and to be accessible within the palm of our hand. They place gems at our fingertips, whether they are the noblest of adkhar (remembrances) and du`a’ (supplication), quotes from the premier scholars in Islamic history, or extraordinary tools for understanding Arabic and the Qur’an.
What remains to be seen with these and other modern resources is whether we have the strength to open our hearts, organize our time, and discipline our minds enough to derive benefit from them. It is for us to ensure that the resources don’t just leave us like the people of Prophet Nuh `alayhi sallatu wa sallam (may Allah send his peace and blessings on them), left behind in the flood of the times – for us the flood of instant distractions that increasingly surrounds us.
As is said in the beautiful, oft-cited du`a’:
يَا مُقَلِّبَ الْقُلُوبِ ثَبِّتْ قَلْبِى عَلَى دِينِكَ
Ya Muqallib al-Quloob, Thabbit Qalbi Ala Deenik
“Oh Turner of Hearts, keep my heart firm on Your Deen.”
Note that by no means is this list intended to be comprehensive. The descriptions after each item provide brief highlights with links leading to the full description of features.
