The area of conflict resolution, particularly in the context of separating families, is becoming a growing niche in the practice of many professionals. Collaborative coaches, child specialists, mediators and family lawyers often find themselves at the forefront of the familial conflict utilizing skills and strategies borrowed from the practice of conflict resolution.

In this presentation Lisa Alexander LLB and Yuval Berger MSW, RSW will discuss the application of attachment theory regarding adult behavior during dissolution of the relationship, with the goal of being able to predict, explain, and support couples during the separation process.

Participants will learn about:

  • Techniques for responding uniquely to each negative emotion; i.e., fear, anger, shame, jealousy, pain and grief.
  •  The skills for effectively addressing clients’ unique style of protest behaviour during conflict
  •  Ways of discovering what partners in conflict think or want, subconsciously, and ways of bringing them into conscious awareness
