The Prun – Managing Conflict
‘Prun’ is an Indigenous word and an Indigenous way to resolve conflict. This training will help participants develop skills for constructive conflict management in various environments including schools, workplace, family and community. It is based on the Indigenous group conflict management processes of the Prun and the process work of Arnie Mindell (Sitting in the Fire).
About the artwork:
Hands are representative of a lot of conflict but are also representative of the resolving of conflict. This painting illustrates a structural way to work through conflict. The multiple dot work, displays a sense of trauma and the many issues surrounding conflict within Indigenous communities today. Hands embody conflict and resolution significant in everything is five – the five stages of healing, our five senses all used as a part of the five stages within conflict resolution.
