June 25-26, 2008 Post Conference Workshop:
Two days with Judith Saul & Scott Sears, New York: Relational Facilitation: The Purpose and Practice of Leading Groups Responsively. Working effectively as a facilitator of group deliberations requires a firm grasp of group dynamics and an understanding of the contexts in which groups are interacting. Working from a transformative perspective offers new ideas to the group leader to integrate this knowledge with interactive and process skills that are responsive to the group's (and the facilitator's) sense of purpose. This training will provide a new framework specifically developed for relational group facilitation. Scenarios will be generated by participants with opportunities for interaction and hands-on exercises. A great workshop for anyone who works in and with all kinds of groups, political parties, environmental and civic groups, and others. Cost: $425. Attend both at a cost of only $800. Register early. Space is limited. Contact us at 701-777-3664 or firstname.lastname@example.org or on the web at http://conflictresolution.und.edu . -- Conflict Resolution Center.
