Because our school system offered almost no training in talking/listening and conflict resolution, many of us don't realize that we lack these skills. The good news is that they're easy to understand and attain.

We benefit from the work of (1) Marshall Rosenberg, founder of Nonviolent Communication, (2) Dudley Weeks, 3-time Nobel Peace Prize nominee and author of 'The 8 Essential Steps to Conflict Resolution,'and the Harvard Negotiation Project's Douglas Stone, Bruce Patton, and Sheila Heen, co-authors of 'Difficult Conversations.'

This workshop gives us the opportunity to both survey and practice the skills that help us get along better with both ourselves and other people. And have fun while doing it.
