“Social healing is made up of spacemoments of resonance, voices touching voices in a common space.” John Paul Lederarch

Are you currently experiencing conflict in your work or personal life? Are you supporting others who are experiencing conflict? Join us for an introduction to St Ethelburga’s approach to conflict coaching. In these challenging times, how can we approach conflict in a way that opens communication and bridges divides? How can we seek the opportunity hidden within conflict – to learn, grow and transform? How can we support and sustain ourselves and others through the challenges that conflict presents? 

Conflict coaching is a highly effective, practical intervention suitable for people who are currently experiencing conflict or supporting those in conflict in their professional or personal lives. Conflict coaching prevents tensions and differences from escalating and empowers individuals to understand and transform conflict effectively. This interactive full day session will include practical tools, pair work, embodied practice, group discussion, and a tour of our centre.

In this workshop we will:

  • Create a respectful container for learning and deeper enquiry
  • Guide participants through our 7 stage conflict coaching model
  • Explore the meaning and value of conflict transformation
  • Curate a space for sharing and building resilience
  • Introduce some of the key elements of St Ethelburga’s philosophy and approach to peacemaking and reconciliation
  • Provide participants with our “Conflict Coaching” handbook
