Our brains automatically classify everything as either a threat, (something to move away from) or a reward, (something to move towards because it will sustain life). This overarching organising principle of our brains was identified by Dr Evian Gordon, drawing on the worlds largest database of research on the brain.
Threat and reward responses, which engage different brain circuits and structures, can help or hinder conflict resolution. Drawing on recent neuroscience research, and a case study based on real interventions, this seminar explores key drivers of threat/reward responses, and how they play out in conflict.
Areas covered will be based on John Sautelles ICCCE model:
Identity; Control; Choice; Connectedness; and Equity. Participants will gain insight into their threat / reward responses, and strategies to assist themselves, and others, manage those responses in conflict situations.
Feedback from a recent mediation conference included:
Not only instructive, but entertaining. A delight to watch and listen to. Delivery was extremely committed. Highly engaging & useful.
The seminar is strictly limited to a maximum number of participants and will include:

Who Should Attend:
