WHO SHOULD ENROLL


Conflict is everywhere and impossible to avoid. While it is not inherently bad or negative, conflict can be negatively expressed and produce negative outcomes if not managed properly. Because conflict is a normal part of everyone's life, conflict resolution, or the ability to resolve conflicts peacefully and effectively, is a crucial skill for everyone to have. Possessing conflict resolution skills is key for personal and professional growth. When effectively managed, conflict can be a force for producing positive change.
