Hillary Haspel, Former Intern

“I owe a lot of the person and professional I am today from my experience as an intern at the Conflict Center. As part of the internship program, it is required to take the TACA class to learn more about ourselves and our conflict styles. Having to do that amount of self reflection, and in a group setting, helped me identify my own anger triggers and patterns of negative communication in my family. I am a better therapist, and human, because of it.”

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.
