Finding Your Place, Engaging Polarized Communities

Intensive One-Day Training
Tuesday, May 22, 2018 (9:00 AM – 5:00 PM)

[Hosted as part of the 12th International Conference on Conflict Resolution Education, Bridging the Divide in Polarized Societies, Cleveland, Ohio, USA, Tuesday – Saturday, May 22 – 26, 2018]

Are you interested in increasing your capacity to assess conflict? Are you struggling to find appropriate entry points to engage polarized communities? Do you want to explore intervention roles and how to use your conflict resolution skills? The session will be a mix of group learning and practice. The morning session will focus on assessment and building needed linkages and relationships. The participates will be provided with a case and think about their entry point for connection. The afternoon session will focus on moving from communication to conversation. We will look at different models for engaging polarized communities, as reflective practitioners. Participants will be invited to pre-submit hypotheticals (could be real life examples) that will be used through the session for technique application.

Presenters: Dr. Julie Shedd, Associate Dean for Administration at the School for Conflict Analysis and Resolution, George Mason University and D.G. Mawn, President, National Association for Community Mediation
