Tomorrow and Saturday, the New England Chapter of the Association for Conflict Resolution (NE-ACR) presents its 2011 regional conference: “Brainstorming: Conflict Resolution from the Inside Out.” Friday features a full day of workshops. A master class on “Understanding and Managing Conflict in Work Teams” will be presented by Eben Weitzman on Saturday. Events both days will be held at Brandeis University in Waltham, MA.
As the conference brochure phrases it, this is “a conference for mediators, arbitrators, facilitators, scholars and others interested in understanding and resolving conflict.” It is an opportunity to learn about: neuroscience research and how it can help dispute resolution work, careers in conflict resolution, and how to lead difficult discussions.
It is also a chance to connect with other conflict resolution professionals.
I’m looking forward to a great conference!
