WHAT KIND OF TRAINING IS THIS AND WHY?
The training approach for the participants will use a modular learning idea based on the Kingian Leadership Training Program. It will provide assistance in developing methods and techniques to address conflict nonviolently. The curriculum embodies the philosophy of nonviolent social change as applied to a broad spectrum of individual, group, institutions and systemic conflicts. Generally, if these conflicts are left untreated, they escalate the acting out of violent behavior. The training program is designed to address specific personal, systemic, and institutional conflicts.
