Conflict and Diversity


This workshop is geared towards sensitising staff to all aspects of diversity. The aim is to have the delegates interactively gain an understanding of the power of perception – both theirs and that of their clients - and explore resultant misunderstandings. They will be equipped with the tools they require in order to diffuse problematic situations in the interest of minimising conflict and maximising resolution.
