Annual Spring Program: Inside - Out: Working Through Conflict, with Gary J. Friedman
April 20, 2017
Training for all professionals: Thursday and Friday, April 20 & 21, 2017
"Pronounced ‘chee-ko', this stylish Mexican in Richmond's Glasswood building has sustainability on the brain with ecologically friendly design and much of its provender sourced locally (except coffee, which comes via direct trade from Oaxaca); its modestly priced dishes include tacos with homemade tortillas and pollo bathed in a red mole sauce."
[add $30 to your registration].
The focus of the program will be to train participants in ways of accessing their inner lives, while working with clients in conflict that are constructive for the professionals and productive for our clients.
We will learn together about connecting with our deeper impulses that fuel our commitment to working with people in conflict – such as compassion and the search for greater self-understanding and mutual understanding.
We also learn about dealing with the barriers to that understanding, such as judgment, anger and the desire for control, and how to recognize and work with those barriers to bring us closer to ourselves and our clients.
The program will be a combination of self-reflection exercises, role plays and didactic explanation, using the book Inside - Out: Working Through Conflict by Gary J. Friedman (American Bar Association, in cooperation with Harvard’s Program on Negotiation).
