Are you interested in learning more about managing life’s inevitable conflicts?

LMU Restore in Student Affairs and the Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation™ Center Alliance in the Office of DEI are teaming up to bring you a series of summer workshops focused on using conflict to drive positive change and boost creativity while also fostering a more restorative culture across campus.

We invite you to discover Generative Conflict and how it can lead to positive outcomes. You will gain insight into the underlying motivations and understanding of others’ positions and behaviors.

  • Generative Conflict: Five-Part Listening
    June 12, 12–1:30 p.m.
    St. Rob’s Auditorium
    Generative Conflict is an interactive workshop designed to help participants skillfully resolve conflicts in ways that strengthen relationships and build community. Participants will use foundational tools drawn from the traditions of restorative justice practices (RJ/RP) and nonviolent communication (NVC). 
  • Restorative Justice 101
    June 19, 11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. 
    Von der Ahe 190
    Restorative justice is a departure from punitive measures that focus on punishment. Instead, it emphasizes healing and accountability to repair harm caused by wrongdoing. The Restorative Justice 101 workshop explores the transformative power of this approach to aid in community building and conflict engagement. In this interactive workshop, participants will gain an understanding of restorative justice principles, practices, and their application in various contexts. 
  • Generative Conflict: Difficult Conversations and I-Messages
    July 11, 2 – 3:30 p.m.
    Hosted via Zoom
    The Generative Conflict: Difficult Conversations and I-Messages workshop invites participants to deepen their practice of addressing conflict skillfully by exploring conflict avoidance, developing discernment in approaching conflicts, and learning to implement distinct strategies for having productive, difficult conversations. The seminar will provide an essential strategy that enhances one’s self-awareness through a needs-based framework. This approach can assist in diffusing conflicts and encouraging others to engage in a cooperative discussion regarding an issue or conflict that requires resolution. 
  • Generative Conflict: Nervous System Fluency & Assertive Communication
    August 5, 9:30 – 11 a.m.
    Hosted via Zoom
    This worksho offers the opportunity to learn strategies for increasing nervous system fluency, which is essential for self-awareness in addressing conflict skillfully. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about positionality —the social and political context that shapes their identity in terms of race, class, gender, sexuality, and ability status. This includes how one's identity can influence and potentially bias their understanding and perspective of the world.
