Courses: Balancing Empathy & Assertion

Course Details:
This course has pre-requisites, please confirm that you have taken the required courses before registering for this class. Students who register without meeting these requirements will be withdrawn from the course. You will practice strategies for achieving the mental and emotional clarity necessary to effectively use assertion and empathy. Through facilitated small-group exercises, you will have opportunities to practice finding - and keeping - the elusive balance between empathy and assertion. These are often described as the two foundations of collaborative conflict resolution, and finding the balance between them can be tricky. You will be able to recognize when conflicts are about to occur and skillfully self-manage the interactions away from the conflict or move through it.
