The Conflict Management Certificate Program, believes that each person can learn how to deal with conflict in a healthy, effective manner. Stress, anger and broken relationships need not result. Instead, conflict can provide an opportunity to explore new ideas and work more competently/productively with others.
We work in partnership with practitioners from established organizations, who are all highly respected and experienced trainers. Partners include:
Currently all workshops are being delivered synchronously online, generally in four hour, morning blocks of time. We have received very positive feedback from those who have attended our online workshops to-date. Based on participant feedback, we will continue to make completion of a full certificate online an option, while reintroducing in person content in Fall 2022, health directives permitting at that time. Peacemaking Circles is an exception, as we are planning for the June 2022 workshops in person.
Some workshops overlap among concentrations. As a result, those workshops can be used toward the completion of each certificate. Workshops can be taken in any order to meet your individual needs and interests, although Understanding Conflict Foundations is encouraged to be completed early, as some electives build on the content covered in this workshop.
