Untangling the Knots - An Aid to Conflict Resolution

Cyrenians - Scottish Centre for Conflict Resolution

This event is in the past

All relationships get in a tangle from time to time, sometimes we need a bit of help with the knots. SCCR has developed a 3 day course which will support participants to develop their skills in conflict resolution in relation to working directly with young people and families. The course will explore how conflict can develop in relationships, and will provide participants with the skills to help them support young people and families to have positive conversations and de-escalate and manage a situation if things become difficult. The course will nurture a creative and dynamic space for participants to share and reflect on their own learning and experiences, and build connections for the future.

What does it cover?

The course is skills based so will be practical. There will also be an opportunity to explore other themes which are key to understanding and managing conflict;

- Mindfulness, values and belief systems

- Conflict response styles

- The wider perspective of conflict

- Encouraging a better understanding

- Brain development, attachment and connection

- Dynamics of conflict

- Skills and reflective practice

Who is it for?

It's for anyone who has a role working with young people and their families within the Third, Health, Criminal Justice, Parenting, Family, Education, Social and Housing, Mediation or Conflict Resolution sectors, either as a practitioner/worker/volunteer or manager of service or department, and who is able to make a sincere commitment to the 3 days required.
