ACP Professional Development Series Part 1 @ Antioch University

ACP Professional Development Series Part 1 @ Antioch University | Culver City | California | United States

“But I Thought You Were . . .” Developing Collaborative Skills 1

Prepared and Presented by Sherry Wong, M.A. and Sylvie Taylor, Ph.D.

Open to ALL AULA Students and Staff:

This Series is a community service of the MAP Applied Community Psychology Specialization

Working effectively in collaborative teams is a vital skill for the 21st century professional. Collaborative skills do not come naturally to most of us – collaborations are often sabotaged by our desire for control, recognition or simply wanting to have things our way. Lack of accountability, failure to follow-through, and ineffective communication are also factors that can compromise our collaborative efforts.
This workshop will focus on the essential skills necessary for effective collaborations: communication, goal-setting, and accountability. Strategies for establishing collaborative project expectations, timelines, and mutual accountability for the completion of work products will be addressed.
Part 2 of this workshop series will focus on trouble-shooting problematic collaborations.

REPARATIONS: AMERICAN DENIAL & RESPONSIBILITY

Introduction to social dreaming

Co-sponsored by the MA in Psychology Departments’ Child Studies, Spiritual and Depth Psychology, and Trauma Studies Specializations, and the AULA Library.

For more information contact: Matthew Silverstein, PhD at msilverstein@antioch.edu
