About the event
Transforming Conflicts by Examining our Stories
Please join us in Welcoming Mr. Jackson Lima, currently, holding the position of First Secretary at the Permanent Mission of Brazil to the Organization of American States (OAS), in Washington DC.
As human beings, we long to make sense of the world and often do this by creating stories. In our relationships and interactions, we tend to create meaning beyond what we actually know from observations. Becoming aware of and questioning the stories we tell ourselves—these added meanings—hold a key to resolving conflict. In this workshop, we will investigate the structure of the stories we tell ourselves and how this can influence the way we approach and engage with conflict.
