Michelle Altman, Former Intern 2019

I appreciated my intern experience at The Conflict Center. I always felt my work, opinions, and feedback were valued which made it feel like I truly had an impact on the work that was being done. Since TCC is such a small nonprofit, it was really cool to have to opportunity to focus on my areas of interest. There was also a great deal of intention around having a positive community which really showed up among the staff and fellow interns.

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.
