Theatre Alberta is thrilled to offer Webinars by Request: Webinars for a New World.

The next workshop in this series is:

Conflict Analysis-Basics with Brooke Leifso 
Thursday, August 6 from 1:00pm – 3:00pm MT 

Conflict is complex, dynamic, and inevitable. While conflicts may create knots in our stomachs, they also provide excellent opportunities for change and growth. This 2 hour webinar will share basic conflict analysis theories to help understand inter-personal conflict, and provide some communication tools for working through conflicts. Examples will come from professional theatre, but theories can be applied to all facets of life!
