Human Resource Development will offer a seminar that provides techniques for working constructively with those in the workplace considered high conflict people. In this interactive seminar, participants will learn how to spot behaviors that may indicate a person has narcissistic, histrionic or anti-social high conflict traits. These types of behaviors include disruptive employees or a supervisor who is unable to accept responsibility for unrealized goals and tasks; the behavior of a person who is constantly in turmoil, overly dramatic or self-obsessed; or a person who regularly blames external circumstances or other people for his or her own failure to meet responsibilities. Although the presentation is not intended to educate in the areas of scientific diagnosis or treatment, it will offer techniques that may help you constructively interact with a difficult person in the workplace. University Ombudsperson Kevin Coonrod will facilitate the seminar. The seminar will be held in the HRD Training Facility located at 1550 E. Glenn Ave. on Wednesday, May 20, from 8:30 a.m. to noon. Register through the Fast-Train system. For questions concerning registration, contact Mary Elizabeth Fukai at (334) 844-7391 or
