Where can I find a CDS event?

ITHS partners with several UW campus and WWAMI regional partners to ensure we reach and engage the translational workforce with each series. CDS events occur across the main UW campus, in the UW Medicine South Lake Union building, and are often captured on video and edited for online distribution to our regional partners. Many of our offerings are also broadcast live as webinars to allow for flexible viewing opportunities. Check out the calendar for specific upcoming event topics and locations.

Building Blocks of Handling Interpersonal Conflict Like A Pro @ On-Line Event
Jun 29 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

Description

In this session, we will examine the key factors that contribute to creating interpersonal conflict. How do we recognize conflict as it happens in real time? How can we prepare to handle conflict before it escalates beyond repair? In addition to gaining a deeper understanding into the type and role of conflict, participants will practice verbal and emotional skills that are essential for engaging in a dialogue for discussing conflict. These skills include how to handle others’ emotional reactivity, how to reframe issues for shifting from the past to the future, and how to formulate questions for generating a partnership with others for advancing mutual interest.
