Mediation Skills Training for Clergy and Lay Leaders

Mediation skills can help you more productively engage with Clergy-board negotiations, intra-communal disputes between congregational members, ritual differences among and between denominations, and theological differences that arise on local interfaith clergy committees. 

This one-day interactive training will provide religious leaders with an overview of the mediation process. A portion of the program will be devoted to providing participants with the opportunity to practice these skills in simulations involving faith-based conflicts and coached by experienced practitioners. To view a pdf flyer for this workshop, click here.
