Course Overview

Collectively, the five modules of Wiser Conflict are designed to give you everything you need to change how you feel about, approach, and handle interpersonal conflicts at home, work, and everywhere in between. Wiser Conflict starts with understanding your own perceptions, experiences, and hard-wired reactions to conflict; takes you through the messy middle working with another for mutual understanding, and; prepares you work for an outcome that satisfies all. Built from foundational theories of conflict resolution, emerging brain science, and traditional mindfulness practices, this training focuses on practical skills that you can use immediately.
