CRSI is excited to present our Virtual Fall Conference:

“THE SCARF MODEL: Conflict Formation and Resolution”
with Jon Martin & Travis Jones of the NeuroLeadership Institute

We’ve all heard of Maslow’s hierarchy of basic human needs – but what about psychological needs? Join the Neuroleadership Institute for an interactive day of training on the SCARF model – our copyrighted model of psychological needs. We are going to take a deep dive into the neuroscience of emotions. Participants will learn emotional regulation strategies, how to re-interpret triggers and discuss tactics to defuse the flames of heated moments in order to prevent and de-escalate conflict.

The NeuroLeadership Institute will be presenting the SCARF Model a frame- work of basic human social needs and their role in conflict formation and resolution.

David Rock and the NeuroLeadership Institute have developed, since 2009, a brain-based model of basic human social needs. The far-reaching implications and benefits of this model continue to accrue with further research and practice. Conflict Resolution Saskatchewan Inc. offers [Central / SK time] a unique opportunity to explore the model in the Saskatchewan context with a full day of Jon Martin (Master Facilitator, Senior Consultant) & Travis Jones (Senior Consultant) on Thursday, November 2, 2023, followed by a facilitated morning with Sherry Van Hesteren on Friday, November 3, including a panel of professionals who incorporate the SCARF model into their daily work. Sherry will moderate the panel discussion and then lead an engaging and interactive discussion, applying and finding the relevance of the model for participants.
