Value systems can be powerful frameworks for complex conflict resolution, but few professionals have been trained to recognize diversity of values. Values provide the lens through which our clients experience their conflicts and values color our perceptions of what those clients need. Since most humans believe their values are reality, they often are blind to other worldviews. In this program, Kim Wright will introduce a values model called Spiral Dynamics. We will experience interactive exercises designed to heighten our awareness of how our values shape our interactions and explore how clients’ values affect their perceptions and responses to conflict. We will explore how to bridge our values differences.
