The Aide’s Role in Conflict Resolution
Thursday, October 10, 2013
3:00 to 4:00 p.m. EST
2:00 to 3:00 p.m. CST
Description: Conflict will always be present, both in workplace and in our personal lives. Conflict is not necessarily a bad thing as long as it is resolved appropriately. The outcome of a conflict very much depends on the participant’s conflict resolution skills. A positive outcome can lead to an increased understanding and better working relationship between the people involved. This workshop will assist the aide in understanding the five main conflict styles as well as recognizing and handling conflict. It will include tips on how to manage behaviors, apply problem-solving techniques and provide appropriate feedback.
