Human services professionals encounter conflict on a daily basis, which can create discomfort both personally and professionally. Effective conflict resolution is grounded in empowerment, self-determination, non-judgment, and social justice. When conflict is managed effectively, human service providers create opportunities for hope, healing, and stronger relationships.
You will leave this workshop with:
- An understanding of how your personal approach to conflict influences your professional approach
- Fresh strategies for identifying the values and interests at the root of conflict
- More confidence to help clients resolve conflict in their lives
- Tools for working productively with court-ordered or resistant clients
The training provided me concrete, practical applications for facilitating resiliency in relationships. It helped to broaden my skills foundation in creating mutual understanding that can be applied when working with client systems of all sizes.
