Collaboration In the Community

vs. antagonism

Understanding others to effectively work with them

To practice Collaboration, I will:

  • Support the goals of the group
  • Be a team player and pull my share of the load
  • Help others be successful
  • Genuinely listen to other’s opinions and needs
  • Recognize and appreciate the contributions of others

Collaboration in the Home

When family members Collaborate, they can learn from each other, share their experiences, and strengthen relationships. By working together towards a common goal, family members feel valued and learn to appreciate the contribution of others. Working Collaboratively can lead to improved communication, increased trust, more profound respect, and a stronger sense of family identity.

Families who use Collaboration to find solutions when problems arise can build resilience and problem-solving skills. They learn to support each other and to bounce back from setbacks. Collaborating to solve problems, they learn to listen to each other’s ideas and compromise. When family members feel like they belong and that their contributions are valued, they tend to experience lower stress levels and a positive impact on physical and mental health.
