Conflict Facilitation and Trainings
Processwork is an excellent paradigm for working with conflict in groups and organizations. In making space for all members to talk together, air their concerns and listen to each other, finding resolution for emotional and relationship issues makes practical decisions and planning go much smoother.
Especially if your organization is involved in activism or providing social services, pressures from outside create additional stresses on relationships and teams. As an outside facilitator, I invite group members into productive conversation, using consensus building, compassionate listening and role-play.
I have over 10 years experience facilitating meetings for groups in conflict, including local activist organizations, and large group seminars in Israel/Palestine, Mexico and the U.K.
I also have a training package for group members to learn and deepen their own facilitation skills. Participants learn in an interactive, engaging atmosphere to facilitate conflict between others as well as conflicts they themselves are involved with.

I work with people of any background, orientation and identity, and in any configuration of relationships.
Land Acknowledgement: Porland includes traditional village sites of the Multnomah, Wasco, Cowlitz, Kathlamet, Clackamas, Bands of Chinook, Tualatin, Kalapuya, Molalla, and many other tribes, many of whose descendants live here still. I am able to live and practice here in part because of the forced sacrifice of these first people and of African American people who were enslaved.
