The Westin Seattle
Have you ever been stumped, and discouraged, by the continuing and sometimes escalating couple conflict at the collaborative table - despite the sincere efforts of the professional team? Ever feel like your "case" is drowning and you are desperate for an oxygen tank?
In this workshop, we will learn how asking about the parties' hopes and diving deeply into their perceived threats can bring fresh air to a collaborative case. Working with the "Insight Approach" to conflict, we will learn to notice and respond to conflict behaviours rather than what the conflict is about. We will learn how and when to ask questions to unearth the threats that escalate and sustain conflict, without provoking it, and how to use what is learned to promote an authentic shift from conflict to collaboration, without forcing or faking it.
This Pre-Forum Workshop is part of the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals (IACP) Annual Networking and Educational Forum, held in Seattle, Washington - October 25 - 28, 2018. For more information and to register, go to www.collaborativepractice.com/iacp-events
Book your own accommodation. The conference is at the Westin Seattle and the IACP webiste will have information about conference room and price.
