Spring 2016 PD Series Video

We’ve concluded another great series of conflict resolution professional development presentations at the Harper Woods High School Community Room. Good range of topics and some really interesting guest speakers this year. Here’s a short video slideshow highlighting our topics. Great job MADR folks, and a special thanks to Tommy Martin and Jacqueline Lacey for capturing the session images and creating the video. Way to go ESCRO Pioneers!
