Conflict Management Center Workshop- Basic Training 1: Conflict Styles and Reflective Listening and Train the Trainer Session
204 Maxwell Hall
Add to: Outlook, ICal, Google Calendar
The Conflict Management Center will begin its training workshop series this fall. Our first workshop, "Basic Training 1: Conflict Styles and Reflective Listening and Train the Trainer Session" is scheduled for Saturday, September 9, 2017, from 9am to 3pm, in 204 Maxwell (See below for description). Breakfast and light lunch will be served!
Registration is open to
the SU community and the public! Please fill out this form or send an
email indicating name, status, dept/organization, and dietary restriction to email@example.com.
Event Description: Each CMC workshop provides theory-based content and practice-proven skills, providing participants with both a foundation and a springboard for building his or her personal and professional capacities in conflict transformation and group facilitation. The Basic Training workshop is composed of two parts:
9 a.m.-1 p.m.: Basic
Training Part 1: Conflict Styles and Reflective Listening
What kind of conflict style do you have? How does it impact the way in which you deal with conflict? Understanding the various conflict styles can help bridge understanding in how you and others react to conflict. Also learn a powerful tool that can help deal with emotions associated with interpersonal conflict- reflective listening. RL helps address these high emotions in order to allow 'room' to address the conflict. Add these two 'tools' to your conflict management toolbox in an interactive, participatory workshop format.
1 p.m.-3:30 p.m.: Train the Trainer: First Year Forum
This session, which will be held immediately after Basic Training Part 1, will train interested volunteers who attend the morning session on being a CMC Associate for SU's First Year Forum (FYF) and other workshops throughout the academic year. The FYF initiative helps freshmen gain the knowledge and skills for a more successful college career. It involves small groups of freshmen who meet with a faculty member on a regular basis on a variety of topics. One of the options for FYF is an approximately 1-hour workshop on the basics of conflict management- and the requests are already pouring in! We will cover everything you need to know in order to be a trainer using this CMC-developed curriculum.
Prof. Catherine Gerard, Director of the Program for the Advancement of Research on Conflict and Collaboration (PARCC) at Maxwell School, Syracuse University, will be leading both workshops.
