Hi there,

It was brought to my attention that there are two acronyms in the  
Conflict and Creativity flier you received yesterday that might not  
be readily recognizable accross the spectrum of these listservs. Here  
is a revised version with DDAS and VSAT better elaborated. Hope to  
see everyone there!

ANNOUNCING

Supported Employment Specialized Training Seminar:

CONFLICT AND CREATIVITY: Responding to Challenging Behaviors in the  
Workplace

February 27, 2007
Vermont Technical College, Randolph
Old Dorm Lounge
9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

CONFLICT AND CREATIVITY: Responding to Challenging Behaviors in the  
Workplace

The goal of this training is to generate an approach to employment  
and consumers that builds a safe environment for dealing creatively  
with conflict as it emerges in the workplace.

Participants will:

...Identify perceptions and fears around issues of conflict and  
challenge as the emerge in a work setting,

...Clarify the impact of those perceptions and fears on the ability  
to shape a safe and creative work environment,

...Explore ways to build a workplace community that realizes creative  
potential of all persons -- based on safety and communication with  
integrity,

...Plan strategies for ongoing support for addressing the day-to-day  
experience of conflict and challenge in the workplace.

The seminar will be an "interactive" and "hands-on" training,  
designed to address conflict and challenges as they emerge in the  
actual work setting. Participants are asked to bring with them  
situations and scenarios that are being encountered in their setting.  
Each component of the training will present learners with an  
opportunity to examine their own experiences in light of the  
framework and methodologies outlined. Participants will also explore  
ways they can create continuing support systems following the  
training day.
