This training will be practicing advanced mindful facilitation techniques through the use of filmed vignettes, role plays and personal stories. The main focus will be on integrating group process and mindful facilitation techniques in situations where there are intense confrontations and conflicts over diversity issues, coupled with a high degree of escalation and polarization. Participants will learn how to de-escalate these types of conflicts within seconds and help those who are disconnected to become reconnected. Participants will not only learn the art of listening, but also the art of responding in a way that supports everyone to feel heard, seen and understood.
Participants will learn:
- How to mindfully facilitate conflicts within a diversity context
- How to de-escalate conflicts within seconds
- Ways to identify and respond when there is a major disconnection
- Ways to create community based on empathy and curiosity
- How to identify when to use the four major advanced mindful interventions
