Communication and Conflict Resolution
This workshop begins by asking the question: What do we mean by conflict? We start with the assumption that conflict can be healthy, normal and sometimes very productive to good communication. Even ‘breakdowns’ in communication can be transformed to help strengthen relationships when they are confronted and navigated with compassionate awareness. Building from the foundation of self awareness, this workshop (ideally delivered in 2-3 parts) looks at common reactions to conflict, compassionate communication, deep listening, and speaking from the “I.” Participants will work through real scenarios and have the opportunity to role play employing the tools learned. In the third part of the workshop we explore how to reach out for support in sustaining your practice.
