Deepening Without Drowning: Accessing Hope, Understanding Threats and Breathing Fresh Air

Paris, France

About This Event

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 sometimes 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.
