ARCR 831 – Conflict Resolution for Clergy

Religious leaders from virtually all faiths view serving their communities as peacemakers as part of their calling, and they are inspired by their faith to do so. Congregations inevitably experience conflict – internal and external – and in many cases they turn to the clergy for leadership in transforming those conflicts. In this course, learn from conflict resolution specialists and experienced clergy/chaplains about the roots, the dynamics and the types of conflicts that religious leaders encounter. Participate in simulated mediations, and learn about the various strategies used for conflict resolution.
