Using Circles for Motivation and Community Building

Presented by: Barbara Sugarman Grochal, Center for Dispute Resolution, University of Maryland King Carey School of Law
Presented at: 6th International Conference on Conflict Resolution Education
Date of Session: June 14, 2013

Session Description: The facilitator convened a circle in a format used in motivational circles in Baltimore homeless shelters over the last three years. Attendees gained the experience of participating in a values-based circle and then had a chance to share and hear from others in the circle about ways others have harnessed the power of circles. Attendees gained new ideas of ways they too can introduce circles in their communities and in schools. (For those new or experienced in use of RJ)
