Sonia Brewer, CIIS Community Process Group

(This presentation was a part of CIIS Multiversity, Feb. 2008)

The CIIS Community Process Group offers professionally-facilitated, experientially-oriented community forums that bring together students, faculty, and staff who are interested in actively exploring ways to relate with transparency and authenticity in a diverse community context. We strive to make room for various and competing views, tensions, feelings, styles of communication, and modes of inquiry and exploration, while encouraging an awareness of unconscious biases and power relationships. We provide opportunities to engage in personal and communal explorations of what the CIIS commitment to the ideal of diversity really means to us as a community. This brief introductory workshop will provide participants with a taste of the Community Process Groupwork. Using techniques derived from a variety of disciplines, including Freedom through Voice work, Theatre of the Oppressed, and Processwork, participants will explore embodied ways of relating in community without dismissing conflict or differences.
