Download Webinar Handouts

Co-located collaboration is a complex undertaking that allows for a highly sophisticated process of emergent innovation. Family Justice Centers hold the rich opportunity to capitalize on the diverse knowledge, skills and perspectives of stakeholders to create change and enhance compassionate, survivor-driven services.

In this webinar, we will explore the difference between multidisciplinary, interdisciplinary, and transdisciplinary practices and how these can help us better embrace the promise
of collaboration. We will look at conflict as a source of enhanced learning for co-located services and discuss the process of constructive controversy in building and enhancing collaboration. Through the introduction of these concepts, we will reflect on ways that we, collectively, can improve our co-located collaborations through the transformative power of difference.
