A Conversation About Conflict -

This is a facilitator’s guide to leading a 1½ to 2-hour workshop for any audience interested in conflict resolution. This is a conversation, not a training, ideally for a group of 15 individuals. It develops a new awareness of daily conflicts – how we respond to them, what they cost us, and alternative, more constructive approaches to them. If you have any questions about this material or need guidance in facilitating a conversation, don’t hesitate to contact us.

Cooperative Problem Solving Guide -

This guide explains how to resolve conflicts with others in a way that leads to mutual agreements and stronger relationships. Through the process, parties involved in a dispute listen to each other’s points of view; identify common fears, hopes and interests; and work to develop solutions that address as many of their mutual interests as possible.
