Enough is enough!  Snow, that is.  I’m still in winter.  But that expression is used by the “March for your Life” organizers who drew out hundreds of thousands to talk about guns in America.  If you haven’t seen it, I recommend you find it on your computer.  Its inspiring and gives us hope that maybe the youth of today can change the world of tomorrow.  Amazing, articulate teenagers (and younger).

Deborah Sword presents: Managing Conflict Better” : If you’ve had a problem with someone, have you asked yourself: “What could I have done differently?” or “Why do I keep making mistakes that get me into conflict?” or “When will I learn the lessons I need to deal with conflicts?”
Everyone offends someone sometime, often unintentionally. While conflicts will happen, managing them better is a goal within reach.
In this interactive session we’ll examine what Goldilocks and the Three Bears demonstrate about what limits our conflict strategies, and how to overcome those limits to be more conflict competent.
Most of Deborah’s career has been in conflict management and she still loves the work. She started with a masters degree in Environmental Dispute Resolution, (let’s get this resolved). From there, she moved to Conflict Management, (let’s be more conflict competent now and the future). For her doctorate, she studied Conflict Analysis, (let’s ask better questions about the heart of conflict, analyze earlier, and delve deeper). Deborah has convened thousands of innovative conflict management processes, locally and internationally, has taught conflict studies at universities and privately, and trained Boards of Directors in effective governance. She’s active as a writer, researcher, trainer, coach, and keynote speaker. An active volunteer, she served on the Boards of Directors of numerous environmental and peace organizations

BEREAVEMENT JOURNAL PROGRAM (6 weeks)    March  28  –  May 2,  2018  Wednesday  (10 am-1 pm)   Arrow Lakes Alliance Church, Nakusp

This bereavement program sponsored by the Nakusp Hospice Society is modeled after the successful program developed by Susan Breiddal of Victoria Hospice Society. Facilitators Sue Mistretta, M.A. (Silverton) and Alice Watson, M.E.d. (Burton) will provide a safe, supportive & confidential space for participants to explore their grief and to discover a healing journey which cultivates compassion and acceptance for the array of intense feelings & confusing thoughts experienced through loss.  The program is open to anyone who is going through a grieving process after losing someone close to them, whether the loss is recent or in the distant past.  We will explore grief through writing exercises (journaling), collage and other simple art processes. Participants will  learn hands-on skills for dealing with life after loss and working through difficult emotions.  No experience in writing or art is needed. Participants in past workshops have found this workshop highly beneficial to their understanding of the grief process and with adapting to life after loss.  PROGRAM  FEE:   $35.00   (All materials are provided). Registration Deadline March 23.  For more info contact Sue @ 358-2177 (opt 2)
