Conflict Transformation in Congregations 2020
Type of event: Training
Led by Rev. Terasa Cooley
Conflict in congregations can be distressing and divisive, and people often want to avoid it at all costs. But what if conflict was actually something that could be healthy and beneficial? Rather than seeing conflict as something to be “resolved” or “managed,” what if we understood conflict to be an opportunity for mutual learning and deepening relationships?
Conflict transformation is a methodology that has been successfully applied in the most intransigent conflicts such as South Africa and the Middle East. Rev. Cooley was trained by international consultants at Hartford Seminary and has applied these concepts in workshops across the denomination.
This work is best learned by congregational teams (ministers and lay leaders) and is priced to encourage group participation.
