Half-Day Workshop

Thank you for your interest in the Half-Day Workshop. The goals for this workshop include increasing equitable communication and cultural humility through simulation and deliberate practice. This requires considering our own attitudes, ideas and feelings about others and depends on our creating a supportive environment for that important work to take place.  Please review the information below and reach out if you have any questions. We look forward to working with you!

“It's always helpful to be more mindful of our own biases and this workshop helped remind us that when we feel a bias, when that signal fires in our brain, to stop and think about what/where that is coming from.”

“This was extremely thought provocative. It helped me to do some reassessment of myself.”

“Lovely workshop. Wonderful experience. #Supportive. #Positive Change.”

“Please find a way to spread this work far and wide."

The Fishbowl Method

Fishbowl Debriefing helps learners visualize the entire process, with themselves at the center. It also reinforces roles, especially the role of the facilitator in directing the discussion toward limited/prioritized feedback and creating a supportive space for learners to practice skills.
