Conflict Transformation Skills

Conflict Transformation: Approaches and Skills (Half Credit)
This course introduces students to a variety of approaches to conflict transformation (CT), including intercultural competence, mediation, restorative practices, and structured dialogue. CT skills enrich classroom learning and prepare students to be effective citizens in a polarized public square. To transform conflict, we must first understand the nature of conflict and then develop tools to build healthy relationships and communities – locally, nationally, and globally. Students will learn about the drivers of conflict and then practice CT skills in the course. This course is part of a Middlebury-wide CT initiative, and this course is foundational for students who wish to pursue practicum or research opportunities in other CT programs. Students will meet once a week over the semester. (Half Credit)
(This course will meet during the second half of the Spring '23 term, from 4/4/2023-5/9/2023)*
