Participants will learn and practice mediation skills that: 'l ) empower people to resolve their own problems; 2) defuse anger and defensiveness; 3) bring to awareness unconscious assumptions and bias; 4) go beneath the surface of positional argument to validate the values each person in conflicts holds; 5) bring these values into dialogue, fostering deeper, open communication; and 6) dramatically increase the probability of finding common ground through value-based creative problem solving.
Conflict is a fundamental aspect of life. We can choose to deepen conflict by hardening into it or we may see conflict as an opportunity to creatively work through often difficult disputes in order to reach workable solutions and even find mutual understanding. This seminar will introduce practical mediation techniques that may be used to defuse emotional reactivity and closed-mindedness and to create a space for dia|caue and resolution.Participants will not only receive valuable conceptual tools but will, through hands-on exercises, have an opportunity to put theory into practice.
More specifically, the seminar will provide participants the hands-on opportunity to learn how to directly foster a space for dialogue and resolution by:
. Empowering people to directly resolve problems
. Active listening
