Hawaii Tribune Herald - - COMMUNITY -

In ob­ser­vance of In­ter­na­tional Con­flict Res­o­lu­tion Day, the pub­lic is in­vited to a free work­shop, “Deal­ing with Anger: Steps to Un­der­stand­ing and Trans­for­ma­tion,” from 5-7 p.m. Oct. 20 in Univer­sity of Hawaii at Hilo Cam­pus Cen­ter Room 301.

A re­cep­tion with pu­pus be­gins at 4:45 p.m. Park­ing is free on cam­pus af­ter 4 p.m..

The work­shop opens with an in­tro­duc­tion by Steve Yoshida and Lee Dom­broski ti­tled “Heiwa: Ro­tary Hiroshima Sur­vivor Trees,” a mes­sage of peace, hope and sur­viv­abil­ity.

Work­shop pre­sen­ter is Mala‘e Erick­son, who has been prac­tic­ing Marshall Rosen­berg’s non­vi­o­lent com­mu­ni­ca­tion (com­pas­sion­ate com­mu­ni­ca­tion) tech­niques since 2000.

“You can trans­form anger from blam­ing oth­ers to con­nect­ing with what is im­por­tant to you,” Erik­son said.

“Although it can be one of the most painful emo­tions, anger serves an im­por­tant pur­pose and we can use it to serve life.

“In this in­ter­ac­tive work­shop, we will ex­plore steps to un­der­stand and ex­press anger us­ing com­pas­sion­ate com­mu­ni­ca­tion tech­niques. Trans­form your­self to trans­form your com­mu­nity.”

The event is the sec­ond in the “Kakou: Let’s Work It Out!” work­shop se­ries, co-hosted by the Hawaii County Of­fice of the Pros­e­cut­ing At­tor­ney, Ku‘ikahi Me­di­a­tion Cen­ter, sev­eral Ro­tary clubs and UH-Hilo.
