Negotiating with Allies within a Multi-Disciplinary Collaborative

Download Webinar Handouts

We all know it can be the hardest to say "No" to people closest to us. This same dynamic can be true in a Family Justice Center where colleagues work closely toward a common goal of delivering best responses to violence survivors.

What is the best way to say "No" to a colleague when you are worried about doing harm to your collaboration?

This webinar gives an introduction to the concepts of interests-based negotiation and the "Positive No", specifically as they can be used by close allies working across different professions in the anti-violence community. Interests-based negotiation and the "Positive No" are tools that allow the needs of both allies to be met without sacrificing values or destroying relationships.
