In this workshop, learn the difference between conflict and abuse and how sometimes, in the name of "not taking abuse," we fail to take responsibility for communicating clearly, nurturing long-term relationships and community cohesion, and participating in conflict.

Drawing on lessons from Sarah Schulman's book Conflict is Not Abuse, this workshop offers activities and practical strategies to:

  • Understand the difference between abuse, conflict, and resistance.
  • Use communication skills to evolve meaning rather than just state your case.
  • Understand how victim/perpetrator identities influence communication.
  • Deescalate small conflicts.
  • Understand how "Supremacy Ideology" influences us all and stands in the way of conflict resolution.
  • Create a world where everyone (not just "victims") are eligible for compassion.
