Event Description

The aim of this course is to train participants to work as facilitators of groups in conflict using a unique model for facilitation developed at the internationally recognized conflict management program at School for Peace at Neve Shalom/Wahat al-Salam in Israel. Participants will also experience the facilitation method by being a participant in a facilitated group, learn the theory that drives this method of facilitation and practice facilitating groups in conflict using the method.

This course is highly interactive, integrating three distinct components: (1) experiential group process, an experiential-based workshop in which participants go through the dynamic process of being an actual group in conflict; (2) theoretical knowledge, learning about various theoretical models of group facilitation, paying particular attention to working with participants involved in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict; and (3) practical training, preparing participants to begin facilitating groups in conflict.

Learning Objectives:
1.Participants will learn to explain the unique facilitation method at the School for Peace at Neve Shalom/Wahat al-Salam.
2.Participants will learn to identify the differences between the SFP’s unique facilitation method and other methods.
3.Participants will learn to understand basic theoretical concepts of group facilitation.
4.Participants will learn to analyze the process for facilitating groups using this model.
5.Participants will learn to relate how this model may be used for facilitating national groups engaged in deep-seated conflicts.
6.Participants will learn to construct a plan for how to implement an encounter between groups in conflict.
7.Participants will learn to conduct mock facilitation between parties in conflict.
8.Participants will learn to critically reflect on the facilitation process and improve communication skills.
9.Participants will become more aware of bias and treatment of others.
10.Participants will explore ways this facilitation model may be used in other parts of life experiences.
