All about Community Conferencing....
In addition to inter-personal mediation interventions, Peaceworks also offers to help with group disputes. Our key trained mediators are experienced in facilitating 'community conferences.'
Community conferencing aims to bring together everyone in a community that is affected by a conflict. A trained facilitator will help key people to look at how the problem is affecting those involved and how to negotiate long-lasting solutions. All members of the community, young and old, have an equal voice at a community conference.

An excellent course - you will come away much better equipped to deal positively with those you meet
The process of mediation should be common practice in society.
Very enjoyable course in a safe, engaging learning environment. Thank you
Experience and insights of the trainers is a major bonus of this course
'It isn't enough to talk about peace. One must believe in it. And it isn't enough to believe in it. One must work at it.'
I found the course extremely invigorating - it really stimulated me and I felt I had learned so much
It felt more like de-constructing some existing skills and putting them back together in a new way
I loved the informality of the group within the formality of the training
A great course for anyone working in an environment using interpersonal skills, dealing with conflict
Would love the chance to attend again in the future. I used some of the skills acquired on the same day
Peaceworks is an outstanding organisation and the skills of your team have brought about so much reconciliation
I am now better placed to tackle conflict at home and in the workplace
'Micha was terrific and put everyone at ease, and gave everyone plenty of opportunity to say their bit.'

This was a very high quality course. An excellent intro to conflict resolution and mediation
The course was exceptionally well facilitated (the best I've ever experienced)
