Managing the Negotiation Within: Internal Family Systems Workshop

January 19 @ 9:00 am - January 20 @ 1:00 pm

Managing the Negotiation Within: An Internal Family Systems Workshop for Mediators, Lawyers and Other Professionals who deal with conflict.

Boston Law Collaborative and Relationship Conflict Resolution invite you to a training led by mediator and attorney David Hoffman, Lecturer on Law at Harvard Law School

When embattled parties negotiate, they are often awash in emotions and impulses that make for difficult interactions and impasses. The Internal Family Systems model (IFS) provides a language and framework for helping each party to identify and speak for the fearful, enraged, or wounded parts of themselves that are driving the conflict, and to feel witnessed by the other. In addition, IFS offers lawyers, mediators, and other professionals clear and practical ways to work with their own emotions and create an environment in which clients feel safe to be less defensive.

This program will provide participants with an in-depth opportunity to learn and work with the IFS model in the conflict resolution setting. No prior IFS training is needed.
