Chabad of NJ’s Mental Health Initiative (MHI) hosted an all-day training for the shluchim and shluchos of New Jersey, focusing on “Conflict Resolution & Effective Communication.”
Good communication is the cornerstone of effective and satisfying interpersonal relationships. To that end, Chabad of NJ’s Mental Health Initiative (MHI) hosted an all-day training for the shluchim and shluchos of New Jersey.
Focusing on both the personal and professional domains, Rabbi Aaron Herman, Rabbi Dr. Yossi Ives, and Rivky Kaplan LCSW discussed “Conflict Resolution & Effective Communication.” The shluchim expressed gratitude in that they left the day with practical tips and techniques – in addition to gaining a better understanding in the overall dynamics of relationships.
These back-to-back trainings on 7-8 Cheshvan, were hosted by Rabbi Avraham and Chava Bekhor in their beautiful new Chabad House in Randolph.
Every shliach or shlucha who participated in this training is eligible for a generous grant to host a mental health event in their community.
MHI, now in its third year, provides a broad spectrum of professional trainings, such as full-day workshops, the services of an on-call mental health consultant, subsidies for shluchim families’ personal therapy needs, and annual kinusim to promote sheves achim gam yachad.
“We are grateful to Senator Richard Codey, a long-standing friend of the Rabbinical College and Rabbis Moshe and Mendy Herson, and Governor Phil Murphy, for their support of this initiative,” organizers said.
