Training Description

This course will describe ruptures in relationships by recognizing, repairing, and resolving conflict. Attendees will review the importance of repairing a relationship, discuss relationships, and assess behaviors and building connections. The course will identify three ways to develop conflict resolution and respond to conflict and will allow attendees to practice asking questions after a rupture has occurred to support and repair a relationship. This training will provide a list of questions to ask someone who has been harmed from a rupture and ways to respond to conflict that causes ruptures. This course provides a list of six responses to conflict, assesses motivation to repair a relationship after a rupture, and assesses what is needed to prepare for a restorative talk with a peer or system-involved youth or family. This course will list communication strategies and restorative questions and describe the importance of creating an agreement to repair a relationship after a rupture. The material will be delivered by PowerPoint presentation, short video clips, group discussion, breakout (small group) discussions and participant workbook (handout).
