Wednesday, May 16, 2018: 3:30 PM-4:30 PM
Greenway BC/HI (Hyatt Regency Minneapolis)
Splitting behavior is a frequent source of conflict among team members and between teams.  Both patients and staff alike may cope with the chaos and stress that accompanies homelessness and trauma by splitting.  Recognizing when staff are split and what conflict may lie underneath can lead to authentic repair, team cohesion and ultimately lead to better patient care.  This case-based workshop will teach participants the basic principles of splitting, how to prevent splitting, how to recognize when a split is occurring and how to repair it.
