CBD 2022: Radical Responsibility, an Interactive, Skill-Building Workshop for Self-Empowerment & Personal Freedom with Fleet Maull, PhD

Sponsored by

This event is over.

Event Details:

In this workshop, Dr. Maull will lead participants through a series of individual, dyadic, and small group exercises designed to reveal the principles of Radical Responsibility in an experiential and personal manner. These exercises will include training in mindfulness, presence, emotional intelligence, self-regulation, co-regulation, empathic listening, and empathic communication.  The workshop will include a deep, experiential exploration of Stephen Karpman's Drama Triangle and the Radical Responsibility model core distinctions between ownership and blame and between living and acting from the contexts of the empowerment zone vs. the drama zone, as well as the skillful means for recognizing when one is caught in the drama zone and then making the shift to the empowerment zone.

Dr. Maull also will facilitate workshop participants in small group and collective exploration of a vision for social transformation leading to a healthy renewal of our cultural commons, political system, and both civic and civil society through the complete integration of personal and collective responsibility.

This workshop builds upon the points presented in Dr. Maul's lecture on Friday, Oct. 14. If possible, please register to attend the lecture prior to the workshop. However, if your schedule does not allow for you to attend the lecture, you are still welcome to attend this workshop with Dr. Maull.
