Course Details:

The course will explore peacebuilding skills through the lens of neuroscience, dialogue, restorative justice, and trauma-informed principles. This course will explore the roles of mindfulness, Nonviolent Communication, restorative justice, the neurobiology of trauma and state-dependent functioning, conflict transformation, and healing in conflict resolution.
