When we face conflicts within organisations or when we witness violence, prejudice or human rights violations, it’s natural to feel overwhelmed by the problems we hope to change. This Diversity training in Worldwork methods will support participants to recognise how we contribute to the polarisation of conflict, and how we can contribute to conflict resolution and make a difference in our communities.
Developed by Dr. Arnold Mindell and an international team of colleagues, Worldwork is the sociological sister of Process Work and is based on the principle of ‘Deep Democracy’, the idea that sustainable community life depends on our diversity and the interaction of all parts of our experience.
Just at the point communication breaks down or reaches an impasse, Worldwork methods support the interaction to deepen, raise awareness and go forward. Worldwork contributes exciting new perspectives in large and small-scale conflict resolution work, diversity training and multi-cultural communication, vision and strategy building, organisational change facilitation, teambuilding, and leadership coaching.
