Event Details

In activist groups and organisations we are often faced with conflict that can feel overwhelming to deal with, but avoiding conflict can have a negative impact on our work when left unaddressed. This workshop will explore ways to sit with the overwhelm in order to prepare for difficult conversations emotionally and strategically. Doing this work can help us feel more confident to talk about our political and personal disagreements, name harmful behavior and develop a deeper understanding of different perspectives and experiences in a group.

Date: Thursday February 23
Time: 6:30-9:30 pm
Location: 252 Bloor Street West, OISE, University of Toronto
Accessibility: This training will be held in a barrier free space. Subway tokens are available to attendees by request. There are gender neutral washrooms in the building.

Trainer's Bio:
Brook Thorndycraft is a mediator, coach, and conflict resolution trainer.  She came to work in conflict resolution out of a passion for social justice.  She loves supporting people to feel confident in their abilities and equipped to ride the storm of conflict. She has a diverse background in restorative justice, popular education, and community work, which enables her to offer a wide range to tools to hold space for people to transform conflict in their lives.  Before starting her conflict resolution practice, she worked in the community sector for fifteen years, with a particular passion for transformative justice, sexual health and consent, anti-poverty, migrant justice, LGBTQ rights and community building, anti-oppression and diversity, and labour issues, among others.
