Conflict Smoothies are a series of nine, 30-minute online sessions focused on interpersonal and inter-group conflict resolution. They consist of engaging and interactive ‘snippets’ of a comprehensive framework. All will occur from 1:30-2:00 p.m. EST on two Thursdays per month from October 3, 2013 through February 6, 2014.  Most of the time is spent building understanding and practicing skills (through poll and chat pods).  Please join us for some healthy thought nourishment that will build your conflict muscles!
