The study and practice of conflict resolution has matured and evolved in the past 20 years and this Workshop will help you update your approach, skills, and the way you think about conflict. You will learn about the Insight Approach to conflict and conflict intervention. In this approach, conflict is understood as an interpretation of threat to what deeply matters, causing ongoing patterns of defensive behaviour that block productive problem-solving. By focusing on the threats that cause people to defend, collaborative practitioners are provided with a framework to understand what generates, escalates and sustains conflicts so they can work with parties to bring about learning and change.
In this highly interactive and experiential workshop, participants will discover new ways to view our role as conflict interveners and learn new skills and strategies to help us empower parties to change their defend patterns of interaction, facilitate new learning and enhance the parties’ abilities to make good decisions.
