Conflict Management Certificate Program
Since 1998 the Conflict Management Certificate Program has offered skills-based conflict management and mediation training. During the pandemic we transitioned our training content in to a highly engaging and well received synchronous online delivery format. We have now offer a selection of in person and virtual options, so please check the All Workshops page for details on upcoming workshops.
Choose to complete individual workshops for professional development or work toward a certificate offered in the following concentrations:
A concentration in conflict management and mediation, to develop skills for use in the workplace, community or family. Some workshops are recognized or approved by associations providing formal recognition for mediators.
Certificate in Conflict Management and Congregational Leadership
A concentration geared toward those involved in faith based organizations, approached from a Christian faith tradition.
Available on a conflict management topic of your choice. Workshops in any of the areas of concentration can also be adapted to your needs.
As churches emerge from major societal disruption caused by the global pandemic, how has the conversation regarding the future of the Canadian church changed? How do we attend to the key challenges of our time? What opportunities are before us?
Join an interactive day of education and dialogue, in person or virtually, led by Betty Pries, Derek Suderman and Paul Okoye as we respond to these questions and more.
The number of Christian-affiliated Canadians has dropped by more than 200,000 people. 800,000 affiliates have left the United Church of Canada since 2011. Canada’s Catholic representation is down 15% since 1996 and statistics predict the Anglicanism could be gone by 2040. While a selection of media reports may sound daunting, is the situation really that dire?
