Introduction to Conflict Resolution Theo
An important part of being a competent conflict manager is the ability to use conflict theory to inform practice. In this course students will explore interdisciplinary theoretical frameworks for interpreting conflict through a broad range of academic disciplines -- communication, law, social psychology, anthropology, and dispute resolution. Students critically evaluate the respective bodies of theory and test theoretical principles against their own experiences in managing conflict. Current models, approaches, styles of mediation and their theoretical underpinnings and applications are also introduced.
