Landlord Engagement Network
EYET’s Landlord Engagement Network for Eviction Prevention will be hosting a virtual workshop on Community Mediation and Conflict Management in Housing Service
When you are frustrated by a situation, communication can feel challenging. Learn how to express your needs, establish boundaries, and resolve conflict with others. This workshop is designed for Housing Professionals, Tenants and Landlords to develop some beginning skills in how to manage escalating situations in order to have difficult conversations productively. Participants should leave this workshop understanding the dynamics of conflict, and how to approach or respond to triggering situations in order to find resolutions that everyone can live with.
