Comfort in Conflict
This course normalizes conflict. It aims to take fear and helplessness out of addressing the conflicts in your life, at home or at work. Becoming comfortable with conflict requires an understanding of what it is, the purpose it serves, how it expands and contracts, how people respond, and learning the skills and steps for resolution. We will provide a supportive, inspirational training space for you to learn and practise the foundational skills and models you need to get started. You will be supported by the ADRLI Course Facilitation Team made up of the Instructor and coaches.
This course can be taken as a stand-alone course or in combination with Communicating through Conflict, Communicating through Escalated conflict and Confidence in Conflict to earn a Certificate in The Art of Conflict Resolution.
