Resolving Public Disputes: Workshop I

Workshop I: Conflict Assessment and Negotiation Skills

This workshop is part one of a three-course sequence to improve individual negotiation skills and responses to conflict, as well as strengthening group facilitation, collaboration, and problem-solving abilities. Participants can take any of the three workshops; there are no prerequisites. The workshops will improve one-on-one and small group negotiations and conflict management through brief lectures, discussion, individual exercises, and small group role-play.

There are currently no scheduled dates for the three public dispute resolution workshops. For information on offering these workshops at your choice of location to members of your jurisdiction or partnering with surrounding jurisdictions, please contact John Stephens at stephens@sog.unc.edu or 919.962.5190.
