Speaker:   Mary Atwater, Psy.D, LLC, Executive Coach and Family Mediator

Collaborative clients often become entrenched, taking rigid positions that hinder the process.  Rigid positions are often a result of inflexible thinking and the inability to see another person’s perspective. Rigid positions can be fueled by past disappointment and fears of future conflict.

Current neuro-science research helps to explain how the brain responds under duress. Some of our clients respond by working towards resolution, while others become entrenched into defended positions. This workshop will illustrate the difference between flexible and inflexible thinking as well as the obstacles to perspective taking and respectful communication.

Workshop participants will learn the communication skills necessary to promote flexible thinking and respectful perspective taking. Small group role-plays will enhance skill acquisition and participants will gain the necessary tools to create workable and enduring agreements.
