Community of Practice

Learning doesn’t stop with a training or even after years of experience. At NVMS Conflict Resolution Center we have a long-standing tradition of bringing together people who are using conflict resolution in their lives and their work so they can learn from one another, expand their network, and complete recertification requirements. 

The Community of Practice offers:

  • A safe, respectful, and positive environment to exchange ideas and problem-solve the challenges encountered in conflict resolution practice.
  • An opportunity to develop a network of peers and experts in the field who can serve as a resource.
  • A forum to explore and share best practices, models, tools, and theories that enhance subject matter knowledge and practical approaches.
  • Challenge sessions on fundamental and advanced topics.
