About the Webinar

Do you ever wonder?

  • How do I improve the quality of my work? And, how can I do it better?
  • How can I know which interventions and methods best benefited the parties, and which were off the mark, and why?
  • How do I learn from frustrating experiences, and how can I duplicate my successes?

Michael and Tzofnat have been developing and employing Reflective Practice (RP) to support the work of 3rd party interveners for a few decades. In their recent article, they make a case for the significance of attending to implicit goals and issues in addition to explicit ones, in conflict interventions and the essential role of RP in building excellence in practice. The multidimensional Structured Reflective Instrument (SRI) was designed to help improve our ability to address the complex underlying social-psychological issues driving conflict decisions and outcomes.

The SRI can be used for preparation, during and after an intervention, and is most effective for learning from our experiences and improving practice if used systematically and with colleagues. Collective reflection boosts the learning experience, improves skills through exchanging perspectives, and is a vital and practical tool for building professional excellence.
