Deepen your Healthy Conflict Capacity

Join us virtually February 15th, 10 AM-11:30 AM

Learning Stream: Healthy Workplaces

Have you ever been in a situation where you felt like a conflict was spiraling out of control? Maybe said something you regretted? Or compromised on your own needs to avoid a fight? Let’s face it, we all have been in those moments when our fight/ flight/ freeze response overwhelmed our capacity to respond thoughtfully. In this trauma-informed webinar, we will use a tool called the ‘Window of Capacity’ to better understand our nervous system’s natural reactions to stressful situations. This will be applied to interpersonal conflict as we explore strategies for expanding our capacity to respond to conflict with dignity, respect, and authenticity.


    • Understand how the nervous system reacts physically and emotionally to stressors.
    • Become more aware of your own nervous system patterns and your reactions in relation to conflict.
    • Identify ways to shift those patterns and reactions to increase your capacity to act intentionally when faced with conflict.

    Who is this webinar for? This webinar is open to anyone who wants to increase their capacity to manage conflict whether in work or life.
