GETTING TO THE HEART OF CONFLICT
A Workshop with Author BERNIE MAYER
Sponsored by CDR Associates, Univ. of Denver Conflict Resolution Institute, and Cathy Schultheis, Co-Chair of the ADR Section of the Boulder County Bar Assoc.
May 4, 2018 from 8:45 – 2:00
Bernie Mayer, is well known to many of us as a founding partner of CDR Associates, and a long time mediator and conflict specialist. In this small, interactive, ½ day program, Bernie returns to Boulder to work with us on how to best understand the most essential conflicts our clients face and the biggest obstacles we encounter in helping to deal with these in a constructive way. He will ask us to look beyond interests to the underlying human needs that drive conflict and to contend with the polarized view that clients, and many of the professionals they work with, hold about the nature of their conflicts and the choices they face.
