Program Description: When conflict arises in a group, our emotions take over.

In this session, we will discuss the foundational pieces of restorative conversations and focus on the impact of having nonjudgmental conversations.
Program Learning Objectives:
- Attendees will learn strategies to minimize defensiveness within conversations.
- Attendees will reflect on the process for sharing all information from all parties within a conversation.
- Attendees will apply strategies to practice facilitating unbiased conversations.
