In special education conflicts, a bad start lays the groundwork for negative, escalating and counterproductive relationships. As powerful as our current dispute resolution processes are, they are missing a basic fact -- people need to come to those processes better prepared to be the best conflict manager and participant possible. They need help getting ready to insure a successful and productive session. And conflict coaching is the tool for that. Conflict coaching is a one-on-one dispute resolution process that can be used by peers, conflict professionals, and for parents, educators, and administrators. The fastest growing dispute resolution process in the US, conflict coaching is used widely in a variety of educational and community contexts. This interactive workshop will help you understand how conflict coaching works, when and how you can use it most effectively, and how to adapt it to your systems and needs.
