(2) THE ART OF INTERVIEWING
(formerly titled Eliciting New Stories about Conflict)
The ways that people talk about their problems influences whether conflicts take a step toward resolution, remain stuck in the status quo, or become more entrenched and inflamed. Effective interviewers ground themselves in principles and practices that encourage people to talk and think creatively about their stories. This workshop helps participants develop the art of interviewing through skill-building exercises, interviewing opportunities, presentations, and discussion.
Increasingly, a wide range of professionals--including HR managers, educators, journalists, mediators, clergy, EEOC officers, and counselors--have to work with people in conflict. The Art of Interviewing helps participants develop skills to create new possibilities for handling conflicts constructively in both their personal and professional lives.
