Conflict Management Certificate Program

Conflict Management Certificate Program workshop

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 are slowly adding the in person option back to the schedule, so please check the All Workshops page for details on upcoming online or in person options. 

Choose to complete individual workshops for professional development or work toward a certificate offered in the following concentrations:

Certificate in Conflict Management and Mediation

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.

Additional Events:

Navigating the Next Normal: Challenges and Opportunities Facing the Church in Canada
A one day dialogue day offered in person or join online.

Customized training

Available on a conflict management topic of your choice. Workshops in any of the areas of concentration can also be adapted to your needs.
