Constructive Communication: dealing with conflict

Enhance your negotiation skills using approaches that support collaborative problem solving and facilitate “win-win” results. This session will introduce some constructive communication techniques that can move negotiations forward positively, including Non-Violent Communication and mediation. Negotiations are a part of life, why not make them more successful for everyone involved? 


Sandy Anderson: A fan of collaborative problem solving, Sandy is interested in helping people explore alternative ways to mitigate, manage and resolve conflict. She is a mediator, coach, consultant and business owner at Sandy Anderson & Associates, building on her experience in bringing people together and working to find common ground, resolving conflict and stalemates.
Libby Mahaffy: Whether teaching bike mechanics to Boston youth, conducting qualitative research, or competing in Toastmasters speech contests, Libby is constantly honing her communication skills. She is an avid community builder and enjoys helping others communicate more clearly and effectively. Libby earned her MA in Urban and Environmental Policy and Planning from Tufts University and is trained in negotiation, mediation, facilitation, and non-violent communication.

Socializing for Justice - 

Since 2006, we've been building this great sandbox where we can bring progressives of all stripes together and try out new ideas in this "Movement Moment". Spaces like this are crucial as we start to reframe and build new visions for our movement(s).

With 1800+ members and 5 years of creating a diverse cross-issue community in Boston (100+ events!), Socializing for Justice is the best place to find the great people, organizations and community you're looking for while putting the SOCIAL back in social justice.

YES, WE MEAN YOU. We've got members of all ages, races, genders, sexual orientations, levels of activism and professions. We hope you see someone like yourself and meet someone you otherwise wouldn't have.
