Externalising conversations: separating the problem from the person with Debbie Dunn

Date TBA | Headroom Café, Hobart

Tuesday 15 May 2018, Hobart

The workshop will provide a way of asking questions following a map that:

  • Separates the problem and the conflict from the person
  • Makes it possible for participants to see the problem differently and to take up a different position in relation to the problem/conflict
  • By re-positioning, makes it possible for collaboration between the participants to take action against the problem.

This approach, the map, and skills will be offered through:

  • Explanation
  • Demonstration
  • Practice
  • Reflection

Resolution Institute thanks Headroom Café for generously hosting this event.
