Interest Identification: The Secret Conflict Resolution Vocabulary Words
Conflict resolution competencies rely on the building block of interest identification. Most interventions, tricks, and techniques lead back to this fundamental concept. Interest Identification is often taught in a cursory fashion without a roadmap for how to practice or implement the skill. This plenary session is a deep dive into interest identification. Many of you may not have realized what a fascinating and useful skill it is! Participants will leave with a paradigm for identifying interests, an understanding of the top ten interests in the special education context, and an introduction to the skill of reframing. Interest Identification skills-building supports not only parent-school partnerships, but ultimately positive outcomes for students, teachers, and parents in their professional, educational and personal lives.
