Getting Comfortable With Conflict
Dr. Francine Conway – Dean, Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology
This interactive workshop will focus on how women move beyond the stereotypical roles as victims and become empowered in conflict situations? Women are the most vulnerable in conflict situations, yet women are most frequently relied on to be the peacekeeper. This session is designed to empower women to achieve a level of comfort in dealing with conflict and learn tools to be effective at conflict resolution. Participants will explore some key questions: Why conflict? What causes conflict? What are the different personality styles/approaches to dealing with conflict? What are some roadblocks to conflict resolution? What are the steps to successful conflict resolution?
