Justice Options for Women is currently implementing a project focused on building collaborative responses. As part of this project we are organizing three, 1-day collaborative problem solving skills training in communities across PEI.
Finding ways to problem solve differences of opinion over what, why or how something is done can be a way to support innovation, creativity and excellent relationships. Collaboration – the art of working together for good solutions and good relationships – is about approaching those differences with the idea that finding solutions which meet the needs of everyone involved is possible.
This one-day course will introduce the foundational concepts, skills and process of collaborative, interest-based problem solving, with a focus on effectively participating in collaborative group problem solving.
