This workshop will be a working session for IACP members to develop strategies for increasing diversity, equity, and inclusion in their local and regional practice groups. Members of IACP's Equity and Inclusion Committee will lead the discussion, and also ask attendees to describe efforts that their practice groups are already making.
As Collaborative Practitioners we pride ourselves on the depth of our compassion for our clients. However compassion can quickly turn from attunement to trap leading to fractured teams and weakened agreements between clients. We will explore how to recognize and work with the duality of compassion, and her sisters empathy and sympathy providing tools to free yourself, team and clients. This training will include individual and group exercises, demonstrations and role plays.
The presenters will lead an open discussion on the best options for proceeding when one professional is acting in a non-collaborative manner, when another professional arrives to a meeting unprepared, when the clients start splitting the team members, and other examples of unexpected roadblocks arising in Collaborative cases.
