II. Mindfully Resolving Conflicts: This workshop explores the
subtle aspects of communication that require our utmost awareness
and understanding: a simple question, an insignificant omission, a
hand gesture or facial expression. Participants will explore how to mindfully transform those subtleties into communications that facilitate relationships in which everyone feels valued and acknowledged for their many gifts and contributions.
Of special interest to diversity officers, counseling, psychology and social work faculty and students, and health care providers.
