Workshop description
How do you get beyond “this is what I want” and “this is what you want” in a conflict? How do you identify creative solutions to problems? This workshop is a follow-up to the Conflict Styles and Reflective Listening training, though attendance at our first training is not required. IBPS is an approach to addressing conflict that seeks to identify and satisfy the underlying interests of all parties. This interactive workshop focuses on the basic steps of IBPS. You will learn about tools and skills for identifying interests, reframing problems, and generating and deciding on mutually satisfying solutions. Add this 'tool' to your conflict management toolbox in an interactive, participatory workshop format. 

Dr. Tina Nabatchi, Associate Professor in the Department of Public Administration and International Affairs, will be leading this workshop.

Please register by October 19 so we can ensure we have the appropriate amount of materials and food. If you have any questions please send an email to Carolina Arango-Vargas, CMC Director, at carangov@syr.edu
