Event Description

CSEE Conflict Management Seminar

As administrators and teachers, we hope to join colleagues and parents with a common set of goals, in an institution we often describe as a community, or even a family. Yet sometimes we find ourselves involved in conflict: either the slow, unacknowledged kind that subtly undermines our work; or the sudden, explosive kind that upends our world. This is especially true in today’s culture of contentiousness and entitlement. Skilled as we may be at communicating with students, we find ourselves in unfamiliar waters when facing an angry parent or colleague. 


This two-day workshop is intended to help administrators at all levels, as well as teachers who frequently encounter difficult adult-to-adult conflict, to:


  • Examine the causes of conflict, and the roots in our social nature that produce, exacerbate, and prolong conflict.
  • Understand our own ways of responding to conflict, and when these habits help or hinder our peacemaking efforts.
  • Learn and practice proven strategies to acknowledge, and to minimize, contain, and resolve conflict.
