Focus of the Training:

  • Underlying patterns and dynamics that impact conflict resolution

  • Conditions, attitudes and beliefs that help parties work through conflict
  • Steps to establish an effective and agreed-upon framework for working through conflict
  • The roles of laws, rules and behavioral research in decision-making processes
  • Working from understanding what is important to each person and the reality they face to a concrete set of agreements
