Conflict Management and Resolution
Wednesday Evenings at 6:30 P.M.
Glendale Presbyterian Church
Instructor: Dr. David McKinley
Conflicts often have a crippling and devastating impact on both an individual and the broader community. Yet, Jesus challenges us to be peacemakers who are called upon to manage or resolve conflicts. This course will be both theological and practical with the former shaping and influencing the practical dimension of wisely responding to conflicts. In order to do so, a necessary biblical foundation will be established regarding the nature of conflict, reconciliation and peacemaking. In addition to a Scriptural foundation, the course will also examine the various types of conflicts, dynamics of conflict, models of the conflict cycle, and approaches to manage and resolve conflict at various levels.
