Conflict Engagement through Applied Improvisation: An Interactive Workshop for Attorneys and Mediators

9 am - Noon -

This highly interactive program will explore how the principles and techniques of improvisational theater can be successfully used by attorneys and mediators to improve their skills in engaging with conflict.  The core competencies of good improvisation are those that support good conflict engagement: listening openly, being in the moment, noticing offers, accepting new ideas, building connection, and seeing opportunities for creativity and collaboration in all kinds of situations.  Space is limited; maximum enrollment is 35.
