Compassionate Conversations: Conflict Resolution Workshop

Please join the Muslim-Jewish Solidarity Committee for another exciting workshop in our Compassionate Conversations program.

Conflict resolution specialist, Jessica Baen, will introduce key conflict resolution techniques to facilitate effective communication across differences. Through hands-on exercises, we will explore how we approach conflict, what triggers us, and what challenges we need to overcome in order to have more productive conversations.

No prior training necessary. Refreshments will be served. This event will be held in the 14th Street Y Community Room.
