- Emotional Advocacy: What does it mean to put yourself first without putting others down? Learn how to understand, advocate for, and communicate your emotional needs.
- Making Connections: Techniques such as empathetic listening and productive questioning can help build connections with those who differ from you in order to prevent and navigate conflicts.
- Managing Conflict: Through reflection, role-plays, and real world problem-solving, leaders will develop the knowledge and tools to de-escalate a conflict. Gain a clear understanding of the roots of conflict and how to move a team forward to create a safe, positive and productive environment.
- Understanding Conflict: Conflict is neither good nor bad; our reactions determine positive or negative outcomes. Explore conflict management styles and begin communicating basic emotional needs through discussion, games, and role-play scenarios.
- Communication and Conflict: Everyone communicates differently. Learn ways to look at your communication styles and tactics to make conflict productive and peaceful.
- Keep it Cool: The ability to express one's feelings from an early age can help with successful conflict management throughout one's life. This child-centered workshop is 45 minutes for 3rd-5th grade students and 30 minutes for K-2nd grade students.
