This year’s Association for Conflict Resolution (ACR) national conference features more than 120 speakers on diverse conflict resolution topics in over 75 sessions. Join more than 400 other conflict resolution practitioners this October in Reno, Nevada from October 7-10.
Here is a brief glimpse of two of the many exciting sessions that are being offered:
Learning the Skills of Crisis & Hostage Negotiators
Jeff Thompson, Detective & Hostage Negotiation Team Member, NYPD
Problem Solving for One: Conflict Coaching and ADR Innovations
This session provides participants with an overview of Problem Solving for 1 (PS1), most frequently cited as a precursor to conflict coaching. In the workplace, PS1 is being used to help people reduce the negative consequences of conflict. PS1 has also spawned other innovations such as computer based software that addresses both interpersonal conflict and provides treatment for mild depression. Family Dispute Resolution for one is an Australian innovation that builds on PS1, providing assistance in addressing family disputes. Uses of PS1 from the workplace to the Space Station will be discussed, and PS1 techniques will be demonstrated with audience participation. NB. Proposed Length This could be done as a short (3 hour) session with mostly demonstrations) or as a full day session with hands-on work with the participants.
