Hello, The live WebChat, “Working Effectively with Especially Challenging Behaviors," is this coming Thursday, Oct. 17. It’s hosted by Coho/US and there's no charge. In the WebChat I’ll suggest time-tested, doable suggestions for when one or more people in the community sometimes say or do baffling, hurtful, conflict-triggering behaviors. Behaviors which may have continued for years — and nothing that anyone or the whole community has tried has seemed to make a difference. It's not about inducing the person to understand their behaviors better or change them; holding in talking-stick, heart circles, mediations; or using Nonviolent Community language. It's not about the community’s decision-making and governance method. Rather, it’s about what you can do to empower yourself and experience more peacefulness. Things a group of friends and neighbors can do together for mutual empowerment, or which the community itself can do to reduce whole-community conflict arising from these behaviors. I learned this from years of observing these behaviors directly in my own and other communities, and more recently from an intensive, formal study of these behaviors. I did this to understand community life better, help myself and my friends in my own community, and help people in communities where I do consultations. These suggestions are quite different from those made about most community consultants in relation to these kinds of community behaviors and this kind of community conflict. The WebChat is from 5-6 Pacific Time, 6-7 Mountain Time, 7-8 Central time, and 8-9pm Eastern Time. The Zoom link is https://zoom.us/j/202941610 I’ll do this with a super-fast Internet connection at a friend's house in Asheville. Coho/US president Karin Hoskin will host the session. The WebChat will be recorded and available later on the Coho/US website. If this interests you, please do join us next Thursday evening. Diana Leafe Christian
