With this goal in mind, local members of the Foundation will sponsor a Conflict Resolution Workshop, Saturday, 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Ukiah General Hospital. The aim of the workshop is to help people resolve conflicts at a personal and individual level as well as on the broader scope of dealing with people on the job, in the community, and in the world. To pre-register for the workshop, contact Leslie Rich, 459-0417 in Willits. "There has been conflict since people began communicating, but we want to move toward conflict resolution without violence," Miller said. According to Maureen McGowan, another Foundation member, the root of all conflict is that a person's basic beliefs, values and theme in life are being violated or threatened. The workshop will view conflict from two perspectives. The first is to teach the skills necessary to suc- There has been conflict since people began communicating, but we want to move toward conflict resolution without violence.' cessfully resolve conflict, such as listening and negotiating skills and how to express feelings. Secondly, to create the desire and motivation to engage in the non-violent conflict. "The biggest emphasis of our work is to build understanding, desire and motivation to engage in conflict when the resolution has an important impact on our lives," she said. Steve Zuieback, who will be one of the workshop facilitators, stressed the importance of looking at the positive results of conflict. "When the outcome is to have a long-term, satisfying relationship with a spouse, a co-worker, your children, the school board or city council, then it's important to engage in the conflict, he said. "People's experience is that conflict has a negative result so they choose to avoid it—it's not always worth it. The workshop will examine when to engage in conflict, now to engage in conflict, and how to understand yourself and the other person," Zuieback said. t Values are different for different people and if they are willing to face 'With creative solutions, there are no leftover resentments,' he said. conflict they will realize it is not a violation of their own beliefs and values. They will look at it from another perspective. "With creative solutions, there are no leftover resentments," he said. The workshop leaders will be using Neuro Linguistic Program- ing, a set of tools to help people get an insight into their own behavior needs and status, and then using this knowledge to empower them to work with other people to achieve the outcome they want "When people have these resources they can use these skills in every area of life. For example, to gain self confidence," he said. When people resolve .conflicts, the benefits are enormous, Miller said. From solving inter-personal conflicts, members of the Foundation believe people can move to solving world conflict. In fact, that is the •reason the organization, Beyond War, exists—to promote the global concept of mankind as one community. It grew out of the crisis of the nuclear age. Members of Beyond War believe that adults have to become role models for peace to reassure children that something can be done to avoid nuclear war and teach child- ten to.carry on these principles in their adulthood. Children, these members believe, have problems dealing with the threat of annihilation, while most adults are more capable of dealing with it. Adults, Miller said, suppress the fear or become cynical, while kids are more honest and more scared. "These feelings contribute to a great amount of stress in a child's life," he said. Research, he added, demonstrates the correlation between .the impact of growing up in a nuclear age and the problems of youth, such as the increased suicide rate, drug abuse, and dependence on technology for escape as opposed to facing reality and finding solutions. "Beyond War is an educational process always directed to the fact that war is obsolete as a model for resolving conflicts. It doesn't work anymore," he said. McGowan explained, "People must make a decision about war. The world is coming to the point where we have to end war." The real conscious strategy of Beyond War is to influence the policymakers to resolve conflicts in ways that don't sacrifice lives, McGowan said, emphasizing that people of the world are looking to the United States to set the example. "Other world leaders have said it has to start in a country like ours where the voice of the people is heard. That's recognized all over the world. "Recently the president of Tanzania said in a speech that his peopl- le look with hope toward our country, and they see the missed opportunities," she said. When people resolve conflicts, the benefits are enormous, Mill-, er said. The organizers of the local workshop beUeve the people of the world are moving toward peaceful resolutions of world problems and cite such events as Hands Across America, the Russian Peace March last summer in Moscow, and the coordination of world help in natural disasters. • "These are overtures, and our efforts are to accelerate the process that's in place," Zuieback said.
