It was posted by Fred, the Cohousing-L list manager <fholson [at] cohousing.org> due to a format problem. -------------------- FORWARDED MESSAGE FOLLOWS -------------------- Hello everyone, Thursday evening, Oct. 17 is my WebChat for Coho/US, my second try at presenting the topic, Working Effectively with Especially Challenging Behaviors. This time I have super-fast Internet so it should work fine and be easy to hear and participate with your comments. (The topic is not about four different especially challenging kinds of behaviors, as described previously, but just one set of interrelated behaviors — those I believe are the most challenging in a community setting.) Sometimes some community members do two or three or more of these behaviors, unfortunately triggering suffering, emotional pain, and conflict for other individual community members as well as for the whole group. The first half-hour of the WebChat will be a description of this cluster of behaviors and examples how some people have manifested in them in various intentional communities, including in cohousing. No names of individual people or communities will be used, of course. The first half hour will show how learning more about these behaviors can help you and your community create more peace and stability for yourself personally, limit the ability of someone with these behaviors to trigger emotional pain in yourself and others, and reduce the kinds of community-wide conflict that can result. The second half-hour is for the comments and questions of participants. This is the most controversial topic of any I have presented in workshops or webinars so far, as it is a different perspective that most community consultants advise about working with these and other challenging behaviors. In my view, working effectively with people who do these behaviors requires learning more about the behaviors, and then knowing what to expect and what to do -- and what not to expect or do. Handouts will be available for WebChat participants. My background for this topic comes from my work as a community consultant, and workshop, webinar, and conference presenter for cohousing and other kinds of intentional communities since the early 2000s; researching and writing Creating a Life Together: Practical Tools to Grow Ecovillages and Other Intentional Communities; and living in community for 15 years. Although my own community is not cohousing -- the interpersonal issues are the same! The WebChat time is 5pm Pacific, 6pm Mountain, 7pm Central, and 8pm Eastern. Zoom link: https://zoom.us/j/202941610 Karen Gimnig of Coho/US is the host. The WebChat will be recorded and available to watch later on the Coho/US website. I hope you will join us.
