Conflict Resolution Training Scheduled at CSUS

California State University, Sacramento will once again host an intensive, five-day workshop on conflict resolution from June 21-25.

Now in its fourth year, the popular workshop will focus on various negotiation and problem solving techniques, and train participants to be conflict mediators. It will include role-playing exercises, short lectures and case development. The workshop is designed especially for those in community groups, public and private agencies, human rights groups, professional and trade unions, schools and businesses.

Sessions will be led by Thelma Johnson, Ernest Uwazie and Daniel Yamshon.

Uwazie is a criminal justice professor at CSUS who specializes in dispute resolution and is a graduate of the Harvard Law School Program on Negotiation and Mediation. He has conducted numerous conflict resolution workshops in the United States and Africa since 1988.

Yamshon has been a commercial and public policy mediator for more than 10 years, working in the United States, Africa, Russia and Latin America. He is a judge pro tem of the California Superior Court and considered a leading theorist and practitioner in alternative dispute resolution.

Enrollment in the workshop is limited to 25-30 participants. The cost is $485, which includes workshop materials and lunches. Registration forms and more information is available by contacting Uwazie at (916) 278-6282.
