  • New! Conflict Resolution — Introduction with Mark Williams
    Starting 7/13 through 8/17, on Monday afternoons, 1:00-2:00 p.m.
    This fascinating topic can benefit anyone, because we all encounter conflict. Using role-playing and practical mediation exercises, participants in this 6-week class will learn:
    • how to calm an angry person down
    • how to empathize with a person with whom you disagree
    • how to focus on emotional needs rather than the specifics of the issue
    • how to translate accusations into descriptions of behavior that don’t inflame
    • how to gauge when someone is open to negotiation, and when not to negotiate
    Mark Williams is a couples’ counselor in practice for more than 30 years. Please note: This course is for basic skill building and is not intended for couples.
    Registration required by 7/10. Suggested donation $30, for the 6-week series.
