Open House: Conflict Management Workshop with Eddie Jude Hareven

Free admission, reservations required
Date and time
Sunday, February 2, 2020 from 1 PM to 4 PM

The Phi Foundation invites you to an introduction to conflict management workshop facilitated by Eddie Jude Hareven on Sunday, February 2, from 1 to 4 PM. This event is offered in conjunction with our art workshop Bâches Bleues Against Harm, which has been developed by local artist Sheena Hoszko in collaboration with our Education and Public Engagement team. This 101 training in conflict management is open and relevant to anyone who feels that their relationships (of all kinds) and personal well being would benefit from a stronger and more confident approach to navigating conflict. This training will provide participants with a better understanding of how conflict manifests on a physical, psychological and physiological level, as well as how it impacts our social/cultural spaces and various relationships. 

Participants will be provided with multiple techniques and tools in intervention, prevention and de-escalation. They will leave with a stronger self awareness and confidence in confronting conflict and communicating during tense or difficult situations.

Eddie Jude Hareven
Eddie Jude Hareven provides conflict resolution and management services to community organizations and small businesses. Eddie assists those who are hopeful and see the need for a paradigm shift in how we manage conflict in our communities. More and more people are beginning to see the limitations of the justice system and are seeking the knowledge and confidence to be able to manage conflicts on their own. People want more empowering and transformational conflict management methods because they understand the importance of keeping communities together and thriving. Eddie’s work is dedicated to the exploration and creation of personal and social transformations. Their methods are informed by lived experience and formal education, and influenced by thinkers, change makers, teachers, elders, healers, and front-line workers who are similarly dedicated to transformative and restorative justice models. These models are decentralized and prioritize solution-focused thinking, accountability, and raising silenced voices.
