In the spring of 2016 the Center for Dispute Resolution partnered with Missouri State’s Childhood Education and Family Studies to offer the “Circles for Change” program Fairbanks program at The Fairbanks in Springfield.
Circles for Change is an interactive educational discussion group that uses a circle format to encourage participants to learn about and discuss a different topic each month. The circle format helps foster relationships among group members and encourages participants to express themselves and explore new ideas. Topics explored included managing stress, creating healthy relationships, and parenting. Circles were facilitated by staff from the CDR and the Childhood Education and Family Studies program, along with Missouri State student volunteers.
Circles for Change is one of many programs offered at The Fairbanks, which serves the Grant Beach community in center city Springfield. To learn more please visit http://www.thefairbankssgf.com/home.html
