Conflict Center Updates Regarding COVID-19

A letter from the Executive Director: 

At The Conflict Center, our focus is to meet our participants’ needs while doing our part to keep you, our employees, and our communities healthy and safe.  As our understanding of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and best practices evolves with new information, The Conflict Center continues to adjust our practices while closely monitoring the guidance of the World Health Organization, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and state health agencies regarding the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). 

Because The Conflict Center offices is a community building where we typically host classes, meetings and community events, our top priority is the health and safety of all who enter our building and attend our ​classes. Based on current recommendations we have made the decision to move as much of our services online as possible, including classes, trainings, meetings and other gatherings. 

For our class/training participants, there will be no classes the week of March 16.  You will receive details regarding online classes and trainings, which will start the week of March 23. 

For our Restorative Denver participants, you will receive additional case specific information from your Case Manager or Case Facilitator.  If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact them.

For our visitors, we have closed the building to all unscheduled visits and the doors will be locked starting March 17.  If you have an appointment with one of our tenants, they will contact you with information regarding how to access your appointment. 

For our entire TCC Family, we know this is a stressful time in our community and that you or your loved ones may be experiencing increased anxiety and other emotions. We have resources on stress reduction and other topics available online and will continue to update our resources with timely information.  We have included a few other resources at the bottom that might also be helpful. 

This is a rapidly changing situation. We will continue to send updates as we have them.

When conflict happens in the workplace or people experience inappropriate or difficult behavior at work, relationships are damaged and productivity often suffers.
 
Workplaces that embrace Restorative Practices have the potential to create a safer, happier and more effective workplace for everyone. Restorative Practices can be used within the workplace both as a preventative measure and to address conflict when it does arise, enabling teams and individuals to work well together.

Restorative Practices can be an effective way to resolve workplace conflict. It involves:
  • bringing together all those affected by conflict
  • providing a safe environment for the expression of perspective
  • allowing participants to come to a shared understanding
  • identifying creative ways to deal with conflict
  • providing opportunities to rebuild damaged relationships and strengthen teams 

Restorative approaches can also be used proactively within the workplace to build strong, positive relationships. Staff meetings, for example, can be focused on building relationships and based around a foundation of mutual respect.
