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? Do you have cases where you can think of many excellent solutions to the problems and yet, the clients don’t seem to get it? They don’t choose the solutions that are “right in front of them”?
In this workshop, we will learn how asking about the parties' hopes and diving deeply into their perceived threats can help us get past the obstacles and entrenched conflict that shows up in so many collaborative cases. You will learn to notice and respond to conflict behaviours 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. We will work on how managing conflict fits within the collaborative negotiaton.
This workship is part of the OCLF - OAFM joint conference, "The Path to Peace - Revolution Evolution".
