The City of Boulder recognizes October as Conflict Resolution Month as part of an effort to support peaceful means of resolving conflict. The city’s Mediation Service, in partnership with the Boulder District Attorney’s Restorative Diversion Program, is offering events and activities for the community focused on the principles and practice of conflict resolution.
Thursday, October 11, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., at the Boulder Public Library's Flagstaff Room will feature the program: Navigating Conflict: The Art of Talking to be Heard and Listening to Understand.
Do you want to improve your ability to manage and resolve conflicts at work, home or school? Join the City of Boulder Community Mediation Service’s experienced team of mediators to explore and understand conflict in new ways. Learn to hear what’s being said, and more importantly, what’s not being said that might be at the heart of disagreements. Leave the evening with practical tools that will help you in everyday interactions. This is a free event, but registration is required.
