This course is designed to increase your levels of self-awareness and self-mastery, and to increase your abilities in managing yourself more effectively both when conflict occurs and during the resolution process. Conflict situations often provoke strong emotions and reactions such as fear, anger, bitterness, powerlessness, despondency, vulnerability, arrogance, and so on. This may lead to internal confusion about the conflict itself, resulting in entrenchment of your position, an unsatisfying compromise, or a collapse into accommodation. Through exercises and awareness-raising techniques, you will develop the skills of inquiry, emotional awareness, self- observation and assessment, self-management, and being in the present.
Online registration in this course is open to students enrolled in a program through the Centre for Conflict Resolution. Students who would like to complete this course without enrolling in a program can make this request by contacting the Program Area
