*Conflict Communication- Register Here

August 27, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 1:30 pm


What happens when you cross social boundaries and don’t realize it? Why do situations go bad? When is the outcome predictable? When can you influence a change in events? When confronted with a violent situation your choices are to comply, evade, deescalate or confront your attacker.  No matter if, or what you carry, you need to be able to correctly recognize key indicators in order to quickly deploy the appropriate course of action and avoid the unnecessary escalation of violence.

Join us and find out why everything you know about de-escalating conflict is unlikely to work.  In three and a half hours we will distill decades of research and field experience into a simple and relevant approach for managing conflict escalation and the potential for verbal conflict to go physical.

Conflict Communication is not just essential for law enforcement officers, persons who carry firearms, or those who serve in harm’s way, but is universal to anyone who may find themselves caught in a violent encounter.  Conflict Communication is knowing why and how ingrained social behaviors interrelate with survival instincts and logical brain function, and how these individual components interact to cause, escalate, or de-escalate violent encounters.

As stated by Rory Miller, the creator of conflict communication, this is what we know:

  1. We know that not everything can be talked down
  2. We know that not all conflict comes from the same motivation
  3. We know that it is unreasonable to believe that there is always a reasonable solution
  4. We know that if someone’s definition of a ‘win’ includes seeing you bleeding and humiliated, there is no win-win
  5. We know the differences between an indignant citizen, a panicked mental, a professional criminal, a hustler and a predator who enjoys creating victims
  6. We know that the same tactics will not work on all those groups
  7. We know that even if you can’t always control the threat there is one factor you can control: yourself

Based on psychological models defining motivations for human behavior and biological survival programs, you will walk away with one the most effective skills for personal, professional, and social conflict.  Conflict Communication gives you a paradigm to see what you are facing, tools to de-escalate, enough understanding to improvise on the fly and better options for articulating what happened and why.
