First Presented: Tuesday, May 14, 2019 Location: Dakota Lodge, 1200 Stassen Lane, St. Paul, MN 55118 Title: Deepening Without Drowning: Accessing Hope, Managing Threats & Breathing Fresh Air Presenter:   Jacinta Gallant, Attorney Waterstone Law Group 89 Hillsborough Street Charlottetown, PEI | Canada, C1A 4W5 902-367-3901 |  www.jacintagallant.ca Description: Have you ever been stumped, and discouraged, by the continuing and sometimes escalating couple conflict during group discussions – despite the sincere efforts of the professional team?” Do you sometimes feel like your “case” is drowning and you are desperate for an oxygen tank?  In this workshop, we will learn how asking about the parties’ hopes and diving deeply into their perceived threats can bring fresh air to a family law case. Working with the “Insight Approach” to conflict, we will learn to notice and respond to conflict behaviors rather than what the conflict is about. We will learn how and when to ask questions to unearth the threats that escalate and sustain conflict, without provoking it, and how to use what is learned to promote an authentic shift from conflict to resolution, without forcing or faking it.
