Community Development Education

Deepen your understanding of how you show up and act in difficult situations,
and skills for understanding how others do the same.

Take your knowledge and understanding of conflict and translate it into new
behaviors, actions, and habits for yourself and others.

Learn about the basic components of conflict coaching, and how it can help
you and others navigate conflict effectively.
