with Dr. Mary Crnobori, Khayree Bey and Dr. Riane Eisler

Thank you to all who joined the Center for Partnership Studies on April 2, 2020 for Trauma-Sensitive Schools: Shifting to Partnership in Education and Society —a timely online dialogue with Dr. Mary Crnobori, BCBA, Khayree Bey, BBSc, M.Ed. and Dr. Riane Eisler.

Mary and Khayree shared on-the-ground stories about their work implementing effective, compassionate, trauma-sensitive practices at all levels in public school systems, from whole-district initiatives to classroom-based strategies. They shared resources to help you join the trauma-informed movement in your classroom, school or district. Riane Eisler showed how the emerging field of trauma-sensitive practices in schools is a crucial way to ignite broader societal shifts that move us away from domination systems and toward partnership systems that support equity, peace, and well-being.

Partnership Negotiation: How to Be an Agent of Social Change Without Resorting to Domination Tactics

With Riane Eisler and Karen S. Walch

As agents of personal and social change, many of us understand that we cannot use dominator tactics to create the partnership world we want. But our best intentions to operate with the mindsets and behaviors of partnership can be challenged when we attempt to solve problems or negotiate new agreements with people who come to the table with diverse points of view and power-over tactics.

Partnership Negotiation: How to Be an Agent of Cultural Change Without Resorting to Domination Tactics aired live on May 16, 2019. It was a rich dialog that opened the field for continued conversation on how Quantum negotiation practices, based on neuroscience research, can help us be more effective and more integrated as agents of positive change.
