CHATHAM — A nonprofit wants to help families, individuals and co-workers resolve their differences peacefully with a free, problem-solving workshop.
The "Fireside Chat" runs from 2-4 p.m. Monday in the Community Room at Urban Partnership Bank, 7801 S. State St., and is sponsored by the Greater Auburn-Gresham Development Corp.
Organizers said the workshop will aim at providing alternative solutions to disagreements between two or more people that could lead to physical altercations.
Conflict resolution is a method Tio Hardiman, executive director of the nonprofit Violence Interrupters Inc., said he has used to diffuse disagreements between rival gang members.
"A lot of lives have been saved because of this method," he said. "Sometimes all it takes is showing people a better way to handle things instead of doing he same thing but expecting different results."
