ResilienceCon goals include: 1) shifting violence research to a more strengths-based focus, and 2) “disrupting” the usual conference format to create a more interactive and forward-looking approach. To this end, we will not only discuss resilience-related topics, but also introduce several interactive communication techniques (based on Liberating Structures and other scholarship on group facilitation). Many of these techniques can also be usefully adapted to classrooms, staff meetings, and other groups.
