Conflict is an inevitable and inherent aspect of individual or community life. Unfortunately, often it is viewed as the most unpleasant and unwanted element of life.Frequently, it is equated with violent and destruction. However, conflict when placed in proper perspective, could be a great source of learning, understanding and peace. The key lies in identifying the intricate elements of conflict and becoming aware of their multidimensional nature. This places the person in observer mode providing a larger perspective. As a result, there is harmonious balance between thinking and feeling, culminating in transforming conflict into an exhilarating learning experience. Tremendous energy stored in conflict will then be released which can be utilised creatively and productively.
The process leads the members through a journey of exploration of experiences with emphasis on awareness & acceptance.
The continuum of self-group-collective is maintained throughout.
The course is highly experiential in nature. Methodologies like Simulation games and case studies are used at times, whereas action - reflection continues to be the base during the entire process.
