ALC3199 - Collaboration and Conflict Transformation in Multi-Party Processes

Course CodeALC3199
Course TitleCollaboration and Conflict Transformation in Multi-Party Processes

Natural resource professionals involved in multi-party collaborative decision processes face increasingly complex decisions where underlying conflict can undermine their efficacy if unknown or inappropriately addressed. Conflict transformation encompasses managing and resolving conflict by harnessing the energy inherent in conflicts to motivate change and improvement not only of the decision but also of the institutions and platforms for implementation. This broadens the temporal perspective to target lasting solutions. Distinct from workplace interpersonal conflict, this course focuses on working with conflict in the context of a collaborative decision process. Presentations, case studies, and discussions will be integrated with practical group exercises to target skill-building in conflict transformation. This course was developed in partnership from staff from USFWS and USACE – IWR.
