Conflict in itself is not negative. But when tensions rise between parties and disharmony increases, that conflict is not healthy for an individual or a group. The rate of conflict in communities and parishes in Kenya is high. This programme trains one to be a third party neutral in conflict resolution situation. The programme is designed to help one to learn how to uncover the sources and dynamics of conflicts, clarify intentions, and facilitate the development of solutions toward reconciliation.
A participant also develops his/her capacity in third party neutral roles of conciliation, mediation, facilitation of groups in conflict, and designing conflict interventions through teaching, role-plays and conflict scenarios. It is a 160-hour programme in four modules spread out in a period of one year.
