As a conflict resolution practitioner, the ability to manage stress is part of the job description. We are trained to focus on our parties, listen to the language they use, filter through what they are saying, and keep the conversation moving, all while managing a range of emotions in the room. With this in mind, when do you find time for you?

Taking time to practice self-care is a necessity for the health and well-being of all individuals, especially for conflict resolution practitioners who consistently put themselves in the middle of high conflict situations. This session is designed to explore experiences, build awareness, and learn new skills. It is structured as a world cafe where participants will have the opportunity to focus on three subsets of self-care: cognitive mindfulness, physical benefits, and breathing styles.
