Webinar: Check (In With) Yourself: A Diagnostic Tool to Be Your Best for Service Providers and Mediators

September 13, 2018 12:00pm-1:00pm, event held online

In addition to technical skills, practitioners in the field of negotiation, mediation and conflict resolution also need to manage their own emotions and stress related to their work. In this webinar you will learn more about how to perform self-assessments that will enable you to stay at the top of your game and serve your clients well.


Context in Conflict: Identity, History Are Always in the Room

Effective conflict resolution is more than "just" communication skills and the tools we use to generate movement. Yes, we are trained conflict resolution specialists. We are also people who work with people. We can't fully compartmentalize our experiences to offer bare neutrality. And each client has an entirely unique mix of demographics, familial history, identity and outlook.

What can we do to remain open and present when the mediation room is so packed?

Context in Conflict is a workshop for conflict resolvers and direct service providers, designed to start meaningful dialogue around how issues of race, class, gender, generational trauma and history weave themselves into our work. Through activities, small group work, role plays, and frank, respectful discussions, we'll:

  1. Explore the assumptions we make about each other and ourselves;

  2. Dive into the elephants that crowd the room, brought in by practitioners and participants alike; and

  3. Utilize basic conflict coaching tools for self-reflection about our practice, and as a check-in tool before each session.

Date, Time, Location: Saturday, December 2, 2017, 9am-5pm Brooklyn Heights. 

Registration fee is $225. Refunds up to 7 days in advance. Training limited to 20.
