Judith McKay, Ph.D., director of Community Resolution Services (CRS) and chair of the Department of Multidisciplinary Studies (DMS) in the Graduate School of Humanities and Social Sciences (SHSS), along with graduate practicum students will offer two free workshops on “Workplace Communication” at the Alvin Sherman Library.

On May 31, 2009, the workshop to be presented is entitled “Managing Conflict.” This workshop will help participants understand how they experience and handle conflict as well as how other people may experience it differently. Other topics include communications skills, understanding the role of culture, and tips for handling conflict at work.

Both workshops will be held in Room 1017 in the Alvin Sherman Library from 1-3 p.m. and are free and open to the public.
