The residents of Morningside Shelter in Brattleboro, Vermont were found to have limited skills in the area of communication and conflict resolution. This limited skill set is a contributing factor to chronic homelessness. In order to address this root cause of homelessness and vacuum of strengths, a workshop series was designed and facilitated. Three shelter residents participated in this six session workshop series. By means of a post workshop evaluation, the participants indicated varying degrees of understanding and increased competence with the content of the workshop series material. A critique of the workshop series indicated the need to omit some of the theoretical material and add more experientially based activities to better suit the homeless population of Morningside Shelter.
