Resolving Conflicts in order to Build Consensus in Low- and High-Stake Situations

Peggy McCarthy & Francisco Ianni

In disaster preparedness the stakes may be perceived as lower than those in response; however, both involve decision-making that evolves into situations that may result in life and death issues. We all carry emotional and intellectual baggage from our personal lives, backgrounds, and employment or volunteer situations that can impact our ability to make or help make wise decisions that impact ourselves and others in crisis. In this workshop you will practice and learn some skills that can help you to resolve conflicts in your own ideology and between others and to help build consensus in a group setting.
