This five-day residential course is for people who have already completed a foundation course with Bridge Builders.
What can you do when a relationship between two fellow Christians is strained? While you can pray for them, you may also be in a position to bring them together to try to address the reasons for tension. If feelings are not yet running very high, this can be a fairly informal process. But if the level of tension has escalated, a more formal approach is needed.
This course introduces a carefully-structured process that you practise step by step. Although the focus is on transforming conflicts among Christians, the skills that you learn can also be used wherever there is a role, formal or informal, for intervention by a third party mediator. The course is particularly relevant for anyone who wants to be part of a local or regional mediation team in their denomination.
If you’ve gained an appetite for practical peace-making, and you want to be equipped to be a confident mediator, then Mediating Interpersonal Conflicts is the course for you.
