Understanding Conflict Advanced
Facilitator: Betty Pries
This 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.
Completion of Understanding Conflict: Foundations (Understanding Conflict I) is strongly recommended.
This is a required course in the Certificate in Conflict Management for both the Mediation and Congregational Leadership streams.
