Schools - What To Expect
An experiential learning workshop structured for your teachers and students to use the tools to transform conflict from destructive to constructive. This method is very well structured, incredibly simple, yet very effective. Here's what we will do:
Examine the types and sources of conflict within the school environment
Explore conflict resolution styles
Observe conflict resolution in action in small group simulations and scenarios
Practice the art of building understanding through eye contact, active listening, reflection and empathy
Develop a deeper bond with classmates who participate in this intensive experience
Discover new levels of trust in a group environment
Learn how to apply conflict resolution techniques and end the day with a greater ability to be a peacemaker in every aspect of life including outside the school environment
School in Los Angeles, CA
An example of a successful workshop was having had the pleasure to teach Nonflict to a fabulous group of young high school students in Los Angeles, CA. Typically not all students know each other well, therefore an important step in this process is to pair them to work with someone different each time, giving them an opportunity to learn a bit more about each other during the exercises and to practice their newly acquired skills.
Going around listening and helping with the exercises, it is amazing to see them opening up as the students are finally able to share how they are feeling. When the time came to share their experience of the workshop with everyone, their comments were very touching;
“I had the realization for the first time in my life, that I have never really been heard until this exercise and I just couldn’t stop crying” – “I just realized what it meant to really listen and the impact that it had on the other person, it was huge” - “I want to teach this to my parents, will it work?”
These students are very proud to have become Peacemakers and they have since taken their roles as such very seriously.

This session will directly help to deal with a conflict among two or more students or teachers.
Stage 4 - One on One Nonflict Coaching
This is great for a student or a teacher dealing with an internal conflict, or conflict with one particular individual that can not be in the room.
