Conflict Management Course

Event Date(s): Tue, 2022/01/18 - 10:30am
Event Location: Virtual
Event Type: TIM Centre

Conflict is a normal part of our lives. It happens in families, churches, ministries, organizations and communities. In our increasingly multi-cultural context cultural differences, coupled with our natural tendency to "do it my way" make conflict inevitable. This means the ability to understand and respond wisely to conflict becomes a compelling priority in our work, ministry, and communities

Most cross-cultural conflicts are rarely intentional. They occur because underlying cultural values and corresponding rules are not understood. What is surprising is not that we have so many conflicts but rather that given everyone's unique cultural centeredness, there are not more conflicts. Each culture has an intricate network of values that support the rules people use to handle conflict, so that an understanding of these differences is far more complex than one first supposes.

Classes will be held online using Zoom technology. The course begins on Tuesday, January 18, 2022 and ends on March 22. Each of the 10 Tuesday classes will begin at 10:30am Mountain Time. Each class will be about two hours in length for a total of 20 hours of instruction
