The presentation is designed to help you better understand the nature of the conflicts that arise on campus and in everyday life and give you the skills and confidence to deal with them in an effective and positive way. The focus is on understanding the underlying dynamics of conflict and language tools to pivot a conflict conversation to focus on the needs of the parties, understand the impact of conflict, and ultimately create lasting resolution.
