    An ADRIA Event in partnership with FOAJ

    As conflict resolvers we're all familiar with personality profiles and conflict management styles, but here's a chance to appreciate what types of rewards and gifts are most appreciated, and by what personality types.

    Meet Brian and Rick

    Brian and Rick co-facilitate weekend communication seminars that feature an afternoon Colours workshop. Additionally, they often present customized workshops and sessions to a variety of businesses and organizations. They are engaging, funny, and challenge you to want to learn more about yourself, your clients and others in your life. 

    Our December ADR luncheon presentation is tailored to give you a taste of what Colours can offer as insights into yourself and those around you.  The session will be interactive, fun and practical, providing information to enhance relationships - including insights into rewards and gift giving that will be truly appreciated.

    Brian Balson

    Brian has been presenting personality assessment and customized communication workshops since 2001. 

    As a trained and certified facilitator in both True Colors and Personality DIMENSIONS, Brian has conducted workshops with a variety of businesses, ranging from retail to oil and gas and financial institutions, as well as colleges and volunteer organizations in BC and Alberta.

    After attending Choices, a personal development and communication seminar in 1996, Brian became involved in assisting with the seminar in B.C. and Calgary. Brian also co-facilitates a weekend follow up communications seminar that features a Colours afternoon session.

    Brian has a background in business, both as an owner /operator in retail as well as a broker manager and sales manager in real estate and with builder developers in Alberta and B.C.

    Rick has an extensive background involving youth and family counselling which he has been doing since 1981. Understanding the Colours Personality teachings has greatly enhanced his effectiveness with families and so he is delighted to be involved with Brian in presenting the workshop to as many people as possible so they may benefit from what is taught.  Rick and his wife live in Redcliff Alberta. 


    Knowing you---Knowing me ...... if I had a $1M, I’d buy….???

    Have you ever been really excited about a gift you were giving someone? Then, after waiting in anticipation of excitement as they open the gift, all you hear is, "Hmmm. Interesting".  Our December luncheon presentation will work with you to identify your personality style, and appreciate your unique contributions at work and at home, and to:

    • Recognize the personality styles of others, and to better appreciate their contributions.
    • Learn key factors to enhance communication and how to reward, praise and/or give gifts.
    • Receive handouts to assist you when communicating/interacting with other personality styles.
    Plan to arrive early, as you can use the extra time to complete your 10-minute self evaluation.
    Presented to you as a gift from ADRIA, FOAJ, Choices Calgary, and Colour Me ..... just in time for Christmas.  See you there!

        An ADRIA Event in partnership with FOAJ

        Converging lines of evidence from neuroscience, molecular biology, genetics, and the social sciences tell us that early experiences are literally built into our brains and bodies to affect a lifetime of learning and health, for good or for ill. This has profound implications for the policies, programs, and services that support children and families, including those of the family justice system. In this session, you will learn how brains are built: what kind of experiences promote healthy brain architecture, what kind of experiences derail it, and how these experiences get "under our skins" to affect learning, health, and social outcomes across the life span.

        About the Speaker

          Dr. Nicole Sherren is the Scientific Director and Senior Program Officer with the Palix Foundation. She has a PhD in Neuroscience from Carleton University and moved to Alberta in 2003 to hold an Alberta Heritage Foundation for Medical Research/Neuroscience Canada research fellowship at the University of Lethbridge. Her research focus includes experience-based brain development, neurodevelopmental disorders, and brain plasticity. Nicole joined the Palix Foundation in 2007 to focus on mobilizing scientific knowledge into policy and professional practice. She both designs and delivers professional development opportunities across the health, education, human services and justice sectors, providing numerous in-person workshops and presentations each year, and lends her expertise to a number of committees, community-based projects, research studies, and non-profits across Alberta. She is also a member of the Board of Directors for Calgary Alpha House Society.

          • St. Petersburg, FL

          Presented by the Mediation Training Institute

          As the Conflict Dynamics and Mediation Conference approaches, we are excited to announce interactive sessions from two of our international practitioners.  

          Pierre Naquet
          President, The European Institute for Workplace Dynamics

          Session Time:
          11:00 - 12:00 p.m., Thursday, January 18 

          Being resilient is a key factor in dealing with stress and conflict situations. The American Psychological Association defines resilience as “adapting well in the face of adversity, trauma, tragedy, threats or significant sources of stress like conflict situations.” In this session, we explore the importance of resilience as it relates to an individual’s capacity to manage the stress of everyday work situations, remain healthy, rebound, learn from unexpected setbacks, and prepare for future challenges proactively. Although there are aspects of our personality that can enhance our resilience, most professionals agree that becoming more resilient is a dynamic process that can be taught and developed. 


          Mark Rosenberg
          Managing Director, Balanced Curve

          Session Time:
          2:15 - 3:15 p.m., Thursday, January 18 

          Helping people negotiate the challenges of conflict is what we all do, but this doesn’t mean we don’t struggle sometimes with our own challenging conversations. In this session, Mark Rosenberg outlines an approach on how to prepare for hard conversations that is getting excellent results with his clients. You can work on a previous or current situation to explore how this method might work for you and have the opportunity to actually try it out with a partner. 

          WHEN
          January 17: Pre-Conference Certification Workshops for the Conflict Dynamics Profile and Entrepreneurial Mindset Profile.

          Presented by ACFP

          More and more of our work with families has involved a history of trauma. Either in the current relationship, family of origin or intergenerational, the presence of trauma contributes to the huge challenge faced by post separation families to find some form of harmonious way of working together. 

          The program approaches the practice of family mediation and other work with families in a new way. Rather than asking what is wrong with particular clients, it enquires about what has happened to the individual. The program seeks to soften some of the abrupt edges of the ADR process by actively managing dysregulation; minimizing the opportunities for further trauma; and creating the opportunity for achieving safe agreements.

          OBJECTIVES

          Trainees will have the opportunity to:

          1. Build a stronger understanding of the meaning of trauma.

          2. Identify the range of presentations of trauma in post separation work.

          3. Discuss the concepts of working from a trauma informed frame that creates safety in tough discussions.

          4. Identify the links between trauma and separation.

          Presented by the International Institute for Restorative Practices

          This year we are very excited to be hosting our Spring 2018 conference in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. This conference will have a keen focus on fostering restorative cultures in communities, organizations and systems.

          The field of restorative practices has achieved a high degree of visibility. Increasingly, the question is not whether restorative approaches are a good idea, but how these approaches can be deepened and sustained. Critical elements of change include skilled leadership, clear objectives, long-range vision, and a plan to achieve that vision. We want to hear about your experience and knowledge in this area. We welcome "outside-the-box" approaches and ideas from other disciplines that can help inform the field of restorative practices.

          We are seeking proposals for 50-minute and 100-minute breakout sessions. The conference is open to all topics related to the emerging social science of restorative practices, in a range of settings, including schools, indigenous communities, justice and workplaces. However, we strongly encourage session proposals that explore the theme of "Leading & Sustaining Change." The deadline for submissions is December 22. 

          Submit a Proposal


          Location:

          The conference will be held at the Holiday Inn Toronto International Airport, located at 970 Dixon Rd., Etobicoke, ON M9W 1J9, Canada(not the Holiday Inn Toronto Airport East at 600 Dixon Rd).

          Alternative Dispute Resolution Symposium 2018

          Edmonton, Alberta

          May 15 & 16, 2018

           ADR has been a huge success in Alberta.  Over 35 years it has left its mark on the courts, regulators, municipal government, families, and civic society.   In 2018, we will celebrate this success and help ADR grow to be the best possible tool to serve Albertans.

          Join us at the 2018 Alberta ADR Symposium to learn about advances in ADR practices and programs.  Delegates will be invited to harness their collective wisdom to shape the future of ADR in Alberta.  Our goal is to see ADR widely recognized as the preferred option for resolving disputes. 

          Session will include keynote speakers, panel discussions and workshops.  Key themes are:

          ·        Innovations in dispute resolution
          ·        Visioning the future of ADR in Alberta
          ·        Opportunities for networking with the ADR community
          ·        Strategies to raise the profile of ADR.

          The Symposium will also celebrate key milestones in Alberta’s ADR community. Our successes speak to the tenacity of the ADR community and its dedicated practitioners.  

          More Information and Registration

          The Symposium is brought to you by the Government of Alberta Dispute Resolution Network and Alberta’s not-for-profit ADR community.
