Fractionate! A Workshop on the nature and structure of conflict in groups

Karl Paulnack, Dean, School of Music

Fractionation (the opposite of escalation) is a process by which big conflicts are broken down into little conflicts, where they can be more easily understood and resolved.  We’ll explore the way conflict manifests in three venues (intrapsychic, interpersonal and intergroup) but we’ll focus on interpersonal aspects. We’ll explore the important issue of when to engage a conflict (and, importantly, when not to!) as well as two strategies for engagement: winning a conflict vs. resolving a conflict (both are useful and appropriate, but involve completely opposite techniques.) Perhaps most important, we will learn to use a handy little tool for diagnosing and analyzing conflicts, providing a framework for breaking them down into smaller pieces that can be more easily resolved. 

Fun fact: did you know that there are only five things that people fight about?  All conflicts are about one (or more) of these five things. (You’ll have to attend the workshop to find out what those five are!)

MBTI (Myers Briggs Type Indicator) Workshop The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) assessment is a self-report questionnaire designed to make Carl Jung’s theory of personality types understandable and useful in everyday life.  The information will enhance your understanding of yourself, your motivations, your natural strengths, and your potential areas for growth.  It is a valuable tool for team-building, understanding communication styles and resolving personality-based challenges.  Facilitated by Jane Ray and Ben Hogben
