5-C Trainings: Culture

Conflict Resolution & De-escalation Skills

Thursday, May 5 • 9:30-11:00am
In-Person:  62 Village Street, East Hartford

The ability to resolve conflict in healthy ways is an essential skill for any relationship. This training will use the Peacemakers Ministries curriculum to provide techniques that can be used in ministry, work, and family settings when conflict arises. It will also offer practical strategies to reduce tension and de-escalate crises. Without these tools, people can unintentionally harm relationships and miss opportunities for reconciliation.  All in-person participants will receive a copy of the book The Peacemaker: A Biblical Guide to Resolving Personal Conflict by Ken Sande.
