This Year’s Theme is Kindness & Communication
Our world is changing in so many ways and this means our manner of communication is changing. With covered faces and virtual meetings, we must rely more on the intention of the words that are being used to relay messages.

We all have conflict in our lives. Whether you deal with other conflicts or have your own, becoming skilled in managing it can be a game-changer at home, at work, and at play.
In this course students will learn the importance of separating the person from the problem and skills that will help them discover previously unimagined possibilities for resolution. Students will learn ways to change what can be changed, the “negotiables”.
This course is for the general public; if you know someone who is not an ADR professional that could benefit from this course, please share!
