The Conflict Information Consortium has a primary focus on complex, society-wide intractable conflict. It has pioneered efforts to use information technologies to provide people from all walks of life with the information that they need in order to deal with these incredibly difficult conflicts more constructively. The Consortium sees such efforts to enhance and mobilize the skills of the general population as critical to efforts to deal with these complex, society-wide conflicts.

To break through the barriers and learn how to coexist with someone so different from yourself, we suggest you take this challenge. Sit down with someone you might find difficult to listen to...maybe someone of a different faith or cultural background and engage them in a conversation with the intent of being curious. This is not about a debate.
Nina has worked with many cultures in her decades of mediation work. She will share concepts such as the different ways of looking at fairness, how cultures respond to conflict and why they have dissimilar desires as to their goals and outcomes, how people express the same emotion in a variety of ways, and why it is a common mistake to "pretend to be in someone else's shoes". This very practical 30 minutes will help you understand some of the diversity across cultures that can create problems and explore positive steps in working through the conflict.

Narrative mediation is a culturally focused practice that is based upon the notion that our lives are shaped by the stories that people tell about us and by the stories that we tell ourselves. The goal of the narrative mediator is to co-author stories that highlight strengths and competencies, rather than conflict. It helps people separate themselves from conflict-saturated stories and gives them the opportunity to re-author relationships in more peaceful, cooperative, and respectful ways. From this alternative position, the resolution of conflict can often happen much more smoothly and effectively than in traditional problem-solving approaches.

Author and mental health counselor Nina Bingham discusses Suicide Prevention. She educates not only from her academic knowledge, but shares from her own hard-won life experience in a new and profound way. In private practice since 2003, she has treated individuals and couples with a wide variety of mental health issues. Her fifth book, “Once The Storm Is Over: From Grieving to Healing After The Suicide of My Daughter,” is due out in early 2015. It’s the autobiographical confession of a counselor who lost her teen daughter to suicide. What she learned about love and forgiveness changed her life forever.
Topics discussed on our show are listed below. The full blog article and how to contact Nina can be found here:
We asked Nina to tell us about her work, and her new book, Once The Storm Is Over:
What is the book’s message?
What impact did your daughter’s suicide have on you?
What are some factors that have helped you overcome the grief, and were key to your healing?
If a mental healthcare professional is experiencing symptoms, or one of their family members is, what is your advice for them?
How has coming out of the mental health closet changed your life?
What can be done to address the stigma that has accompanied mental illness in the past?
If our listeners have a friend or family member who is struggling with mental illness, or if they are, what should they do?

For some of us the experience of being in conflict is daunting! We have learned through our families of origin, friends, teachers, and other sources how to manage our interpersonal disputes, including trial and error which are often our main teachers. The quest for engaging more effectively in conflict commonly begins when we realize our usual approaches are no longer working. Or, we are faced with situations that overwhelm us - or get us into trouble. In this show, Cinnie Noble will discuss her view of the meaning of conflict mastery - also referred to as conflict intelligence - and what helps optimize the quest to get there.
Cinnie Noble is a lawyer, mediator (Advanced Practitioner - Association for Conflict Resolution), and Professional Certified Coach based in Toronto, Canada. She developed the CINERGY Model of conflict management coaching in 1999 and coaches people worldwide in their efforts to improve the way they engage in their interpersonal conflicts. Cinnie and her associates also train coaches, mediators, lawyers, HR professionals, psychologists, social workers, leaders, and others around the world to use her unique evidenced-based coaching model. She is author of 5 books, the most recent being "Conflict Management Coaching: The CINERGY™ Model". Cinnie's book entitled "Conflict Mastery Quest(ions)" will be released later this year.
