Event description
Learn about conflict, perception, & changing someone's mind. Author & conflict resolution expert, Tim Hicks, will teach us about our brains

About this Event

Our brain’s most basic function is the ability to encode perceptual experience in dynamic and relatively stable neural networks, what can be called neural matrices of meaning. This capacity to encode our experience in neural structures is the basis of learning, memory, cognition, and identity and provides the physical framework for our beliefs and understandings, those very experiences that are involved in conflict and its resolution.

In this training, participants will come to understand neural function and how its characteristics affect and relate to communication, relationship, and conflict resolution. Participants will apply the conceptual ideas directly to their personal and professional lives and explore the practical implications for conflict resolution practice and everyday relations.

Tim Hicks is a conflict management professional providing mediation, facilitation, training, coaching, and consulting to individuals and organizations in the private and public arenas. From 2006 to 2014, after 14 years in private practice as a mediator/facilitator, he led the Master’s degree program in Conflict and Dispute Resolution at the University of Oregon.
