Conflict is an emotive subject. This 1-day course is about finding new ways to look at it. There will be a variety of practical art exercises to gain insights into different aspects of conflict, conflict resolution and mediation, including first reactions to conflict, handling conflict non-verbally and conflict arising in sharing space.
Participants will use drawing/painting as a step towards resolving conflicts, and working with others on the course.
The aim is for participants to acquire a greater awareness of different aspects of conflict, and how to work with conflict constructively.
A set of handouts will accompany this course.
NOTE: This workshop is the second day of two separate training days, which are non-sequential.
- Although this is designed as a 2-day weekend workshop, you may prefer to attend just Saturday or Sunday.
- Participants can enrol in one or both days (10% discount for enrolling on both days).
