This Final Project seeks to investigate the evolving art of conflict transformation. Conflict transformation is presented via three modalities: a three-hour workshop on conflict resolution, a thirteen-session course, "Managing Conflict," including syllabus and facilitator' s guide, and a complete worship service. The service will be given before an audience in Fall 2008 at Skidmore College. Using these three modalities, the origins of conflict, the function of conflict transformation strategies, the issue of cultural competency, and the relationship to peacemaking are explored from the standpoint of a skilled practitioner in the field.
