Apply to Attend Interest Based Process Training Dec. 5-7 in Southern California


Registration deadline has passed

Apply for the Consortium for Educational Change’s Interest-Based Process (IBP) training that will occur December 5-7, 2017, in Perris, Calif. The training location is approximately an hour from Anaheim. This training will provide you with the knowledge and skills to train and facilitate conflict situations, contract negotiations and difficult conversations between groups. The application deadline is November 10, 2017, and the registration deadline if approved for the training is November 17.

The process increases the ability to reach shared goals while maintaining respectful relationships and advocacy. Unlike positional methods, IBP provides opportunities for parties to learn if their interests are in conflict, are shared, or are complementary – before they seek solutions. IBP requires parties to describe issues in order to articulate interests, brainstorm potential options, and select solutions to meet their interests. IBP often leads to increased trust among parties and individuals because it reduces adversarial behavior while promoting productive relationships.

If you believe you could be a successful certified IBP trainer and facilitator, or if you can recommend any individuals who you believe may be successful facilitators and/or trainers, please contact Kathy Tooredman at or 312-636-6101.

The three-day IBP training registration fee is $800, which includes lunch and materials each day. Attendees need to make all their own travel arrangements.

If you are certified after completing this professional development program, you will have the opportunity to be placed by CEC in districts requesting IBP services, and have access to a repository of IBP materials and resources.
