Hillsboro, Oregon 97124
- May 16, 9:00 am to 12:00 pm - Conflict Styles
Each one of us has a unique style when faced with conflict. We’ve learned those responses from our very earliest interactions with other people. We will explore the nature of conflict styles and the instinctual conditions that keep conflicts from getting resolved.
- May 23, 9:00 am to 12:00 pm - Resistance to Resolving Conflicts
What causes people to resist efforts to resolve a conflict? We’ll take a look at what gets in the way of conflict resolution. What causes people to
become entrenched and unable to move towards a peaceful solution. How can we become “unstuck” when what we are resisting is persisting?
- June 6, 9:00 am to 12:00 pm - How to Handle Angry People
This final class ties all the classes together by connecting elements of previous workshops into more practical experiences, using real scenarios of communication breakdowns. Participants will focus primarily on identifying their own conflict behaviors and styles and practice ways to reframe the conversation towards open and constructive dialogue.
Attend one, two or all three classes! No cost to attend but please register via email at: Mediation@Hillsboro-Oregon.gov. Seats are limited.
Classes are instructed by Tsipora Dimant of the Beaverton Center for Mediation and Dialog and will be held at the Brookwood Library.
