This new workshop, uses the two lenses of conflict drivers and conflict paradoxes, and considers seemingly intractable conflicts and their transformation.  Questions for consideration include the nature of intractability, de-escalation strategies, transforming intractable conflicts and engaging emotions. This workshop builds on Understanding Conflict: Foundations.  It is highly interactive, insightful, engaging and critical for all those who wish to deeply understand the nature of conflict and its transformation.

This workshop has been added to the program to address evaluations that two days for the previous Understanding Conflict I workshop was insufficient time to cover all the topics.  For those that have previously taken UCI this is new content.

Completion of Understanding Conflict: Foundations  (Understanding Conflict I) strongly recommended.

This is a required course in the Certificate in Conflict Management and Congregational Leadership.
