"Difficult Conversations​"

By Rachel Szostek 
Director of the Athens Area Mediation Service

Conflict and disagreement are normal and natural parts of the human existence, but that doesn't always mean tough conversations are easy.  Rachel Szostek will present 
a hands-on workshop about the nature of conflict, understanding and responding to different perspectives, and discovering interests in difficult conversations.  Please come to learn more about how to navigate tricky and tough discussions (especially during the holiday season) and find common ground to build stronger communities.


Reservations and cancellations 
are due by 6:oo pm Sunday, December 9, 2018. 

Email: Lisa Murray at
to make a reservation.
