Conflict among students, educators, and family members can derail learning and result in student and family disengagement, staff fatigue and burnout, and unfortunately, even school violence. Effective conflict resolution strategies are essential to safe and nurturing learning environments. And even the most compassionate and caring school communities can benefit from practices that promote growth, connection, and resilience while reducing damage to relationships.
Join us to learn specific skills and strategies that will help you reduce conflict and respond intentionally to students, school staff, parents, and others in crisis. Our presenters will review a variety of processes relevant to conflict resolution in schools, including de-escalation tactics, active and reflective listening techniques, emotional coaching, and more.
Presenters: Aaron Weintraub and Dana Asby, MA, MEd
