Community Resolution Services at SHSS Engages Attendees during NSU’s CommunityFest

Community Resolution Services (CRS) in the Graduate School of Humanities and Social Sciences (SHSS) participated in NSU’s CommunityFest on Saturday, Feb. 9. CRS’ booth provided two activities for community members. One activity was focused on thanking those in the US military for their service by inviting the community to complete thank you cards to military personnel. CRS provided the materials to create cards including crayons, stickers, stars and other decorations.  CRS is sending the cards to AMillionThanks.Org.to be forwarded to military personnel serving at home, abroad, and those injured in hospitals. The second activity invited participants engage in seeking alternate ways to constructively communicate when they were upset, angry or distressed.

CRS is a practicum site for graduate students from the Department of Conflict Analysis and Resolution (DCAR) and students in the Master of Arts Program in Cross-Disciplinary Studies (MACS) in the Department of Multidisciplinary Studies (DMS). Those who worked on the CommunityFest project included Joy Benjamin, CRS Coordinator and doctoral candidate, and Natasha Bordes (MACS), Darryl B. Dalton (DCAR), Sharon Fadul (DCAR), Luis Hernandez (DCAR), Lauren Kobernick (MACS), Jazmin Letamendi (DCAR), Nikiel Nesbeth (DCAR), Jesely Rojas (MACS), and Kacey Shap (DCAR).

CRS offers trainings and workshops, as well as mediation, facilitation, conflict coaching, and leadership and community building services to individuals, families, groups, and organizations.
