Navigating Challenging Conversations 201 (section two)


Do you have a basic understanding of navigating challenging conversations and want to focus on practice and further development of your skills? This workshop is for you!


We will start by discussing the importance of establishing community norms and clarifying community values (often overlooked when addressing challenging conversations). We will then spend the majority of this workshop engaged in structured role-playing, using a creative and engaging process, on topics chosen by participants. Attendees will leave having practiced specific and personally relevant conversations and will have received feedback and suggestions from peers and leaders.


Prerequisite:  Participation in one of the Navigating Challenging Conversation professional development workshops offered through AIMS is a prerequisite.  This program will be building off of the information shared in that original program. 

AIMS Members: $50 (through January 8th) or $60 (After January 8th)
NON AIMS Members: $70(through January 8th) or $80 (After January 8th)


Lunch can be purchased for an additional $15.00 per person (make sure to indicate lunch order on your registration).
