KCBA ADR: Nov 10- Table Top Games for Conflict Resolution Practitioners

Presented by: Sharon Sutherland of True North Dispute Management, Tsawwassen, BC

Did you grow up playing only competitive games and internalizing the message that individualized competition is culturally neutral and teaches critical life skills? This session will introduce participants to lesser known models of play that depend upon team-based competition (against the game) and group problem-solving, and that offer the potential to test cultural norms of competition while allowing opportunities to practice skills that will support both interest-based negotiation and mediation practices.  We’ll also discuss the ways that these games can be used in real mediations and negotiations. 

  • Promoting cooperative skill in culture where we normally value competitive skills
  • The power of play
  • Collaborative Tabletop games
  • How to introduce games in conflict resolution
