Dialogue for Peaceful Change – Advanced Mediation 2012
Nov 2 – Nov 4, 2012
Fri 7:00 PM – Sun 1:00 PM
For certified DPC facilitators to troubleshoot specific and contextual conflicts that emerge around the dinner table, within us, and in the places where we live and work.
Ever been to a thanksgiving dinner or family wedding and conflict erupts just as the coleslaw rounds the table? This training is for certified DPC facilitators who have completed the Dialogue for Peaceful Change mediation program. It is for people who are interested in deepening their skills to practice “meditative behavior” and communication as it relates to your family and work. We’ll also explore using the DPC skills in workplace and group contexts where conflict is experienced by a variety of people at different times and in different contexts. Imagine a big community or workplace gathering, church or faith based committee meeting, what happens when conflict erupts around us and within us? How do you apply DPC methodologies to support transformative change? We’ll be offering up a DPC community development approach for you to consider and practice. This will be a great chance to enhance and refresh your DPC skills. It will be a chance to also gather with other folks from the DPC family. Don’t worry if you aren’t doing formal DPC mediation, this program isn’t about formal mediation, it’s about using DPC in the contexts in which you live.
Program Cost: $425 ($270 tuition+$155 meals/accommodations)
