Conflict resolution is highly important in any team and group work as well as in life in general. On the one hand, conflicts necessarily occur at one point or another and on the other hand, they have a high potential to bring us into learning and moving on, as an individual, team or group, when dealt with in a good manner. So, let’s learn together how we can actually deal with conflicts.
In this workshop we want to dive into theoretical approaches to conflict resolution and then try out practically some tools and methods, in order to understand how we can best use the approaches and address conflicts as facilitators working with groups and teams. You will get familiar with basic theories and models of conflict analysis, you will learn how to identify causes and symptoms of conflicts in a group, how to address them in a constructive manner and use them as opportunities for progress. You will also discover how you can support others in developing a peaceful attitude towards themselves in situations of conflict.
The workshop consists of two three-hour-long online sessions combining theory and practice of conflict resolution and is for facilitators who want to get a deeper knowledge on the topic, as well as to try out practical tools and approaches that can help in daily conflict situations. With case work we want to make this hot topic tangible and relate to your contexts.
This workshop covers:
- theoretical aspects: the post-modernist approach to conflict (as described by Lene Overgaard Mogensen); types of conflict; the conflict escalation ladder; non-violent communication; the importance of empathy & acceptance.
- practical aspects: tools & techniques to face conflictual situation (simulations); active listening; negotiations (role play); mediation – practicing questioning; practicing Nonviolent Communication; case studies of conflictual situations/positions.
You will experience:
- a good balance between theory and practice delivered in four three-hour-long online sessions weekly via Zoom
- self-directed learning with readings and group work in between the sessions#
- interactive online sessions implemented by experienced facilitators
- a learning community, with opportunities to exchange ideas and gain feedback from other participants
- context adapted learning and including try outs with feedback
- a purpose-driven and process-oriented training design
