OVERVIEW:

With an esteemed international faculty, we bring this collaborative practice training to you in a virtual environment, saving you time and money, while also maintaining an active learning environment.


As a virtual training, our efforts will take place Wednesday and Thursday afternoon of May 11 & 12, culminating in two, 3-hour sessions in an interactive and engaging Zoom portal. To maximize your learning experience, the training will consist of lawyers as well as mental health and financial professionals that would be involved in the collaborative practice process.


TOPICS:

At a time when peacemaking has garnered much of the discourse within the Collaborative community, why doesn't it feel like that when we're doing the work? Is an expectation of peace and harmony realistic, even counterproductive? This workshop will turn our initial understanding of collaboration on its head and do a deep dive into the reality of conflict.

We will explore why, in so many of our cases with little trust and goodwill, we need to abandon the expectation of a harmonious team, shared interests and values, and get on the same page. Instead, we need to embrace and expect a difference, employ both power and love, experiment our way forward, and focus on what we can do rather than why they need to change.


This training delves into the work of Adam Kahane, as well as complexity theory. We will begin to debunk our notions about what it means to work collaboratively and then begin to build the necessary skills to analyze, reflect on, and create collaboration in our more difficult cases.


Through facilitated discussions and reflective exercises, the training will give participants an opportunity to reflect on these building blocks and how they relate to us personally as we work with conflict. We will then use a case scenario to apply the principles of what Adam Kahane refers to as "Stretch Collaboration", considering the following:

• complexity theory,

• balancing both power [asserting] and love [engaging],

• power dynamics in light of the capacity for unilateral & bilateral action (force, adapt, exit?)

• the strategic use of downloading, debating, dialoguing, & presencing


The training will encourage practitioners to leave with some insight into how we, as collaborative practitioners, cannot change anyone else. We can only change ourselves and how we show up in the room. How we commit to doing that greatly influences how we work as collaborative practitioners.
