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 and non-judgment. When conflict is managed effectively, human service providers create opportunities for hope, healing, and stronger relationships.

Participants will:

  • Observe how their personal approach to conflict influences their professional approach
  • Apply new strategies for identifying the values and interests at the root of conflict
  • Demonstrate more confidence to help clients resolve conflict in their lives
  • Utilize for working productively with court-ordered or resistant clients
