Participants will learn the fundamentals of interest-based dispute resolution and practice applying these powerful techniques in the context of real-life special education disputes. Our focus will be on the core concepts of interest-based dispute resolution, including interests vs. positions, BATNA, active listening, and creating win-win solutions. This will be an opportunity for hands-on, active practice in a safe, respectful, group setting with diverse participants from all “sides” of the conflict, including parents, educators, administrators, practitioners, lawyers, etc. This will NOT be a “sit and listen” experience. Participants should be eager to share, practice and learn with and from one another.
