Life, Death and Conflict: Swords into Ploughshares

Hosted by

Conflict Resolution for Elders by Marcy Einhorn

Life, Death and Conflict: Swords into Ploughshares

Wednesday, October 30

9:30am-11:00am

Changes that arise as we confront death can create conflict in our relationships. In this hands-on workshop we’ll explore new ways to talk to each other about these changes.

Change can bring about conflict. The changes that arise as we confront death are no exception.

In this hands-on workshop we’ll explore new ways to talk to each other about the conflicts that arise with others when we consider our own mortality.

We’ll identify classic triggering situations and the real interests at play, which often masquerade as facts and typically stand in the way of finding an amicable solution to our conflicts. Then we’ll put everything we uncover front and center and brainstorm together about possible solutions.

The program also includes an introduction to mediation which is a confidential, cost-effective forum used in solving conflicts. We’ll break into small groups and apply what we’ve learned to test case scenarios with which we can all identify, with plenty of time for Q and A and feedback.

Facilitated by Marcy Einhorn. Marcy spent an entire career in traditional dispute resolution forums and now provides alternative ways of solving disputes to Elders and their adult family members and support teams.
