The Art and Science of Mediating Conflict: Some First Steps*

Greer 155

3:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.

Presenters: Craig Wansink, Ph.D., and Kelly Jackson

*Registration required by April 19

Using principles from counselors, hostage negotiators, and linguists, this workshop focuses on identifying sources of conflict (in society, work, politics, places of worship, and at home) and on developing the skills that both mediate and point to “third ways” during times of conflict. This workshop focuses on four important principles and five action steps that have served us—at the Robert Nusbaum Center—in ways that make us grateful. We hope you will join us as we explore what it means to seek to be agents of reconciliation, first in our own lives and then in our home, church, or society. Craig Wansink, Ph.D., and Kelly Jackson serve as director and associate director, respectively, of the Robert Nusbaum Center at VWU.

Sponsored by the Robert Nusbaum Center at VWU. For more information, contact the Center at 757.455.3129 or
