The Connecticut Center for Nonviolence, (CTCN) in collaboration with Southern CT State University’s (SCSU) Multicultural Center and Department of Educational and Leadership & Policy Studies will present a two-day introduction to Kingian Nonviolence Conflict Reconciliation on Fri., March 6 from 1-7 p.m. and Sat., March 7, from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. at SCSU’s Engleman Hall in New Haven.
This two-day Introduction teaches the Six Principles of Nonviolence, as well as basic concepts, strategies and tools that individuals and communities can use to address conflict without resorting to violence. “The training provides a framework for conflict reconciliation management and mediation that can be applied to all areas of conflict in daily life,” says Dian Brown-Albert, SCSU coordinator of Multicultural Affairs, one of the event's organizers.
Participants will learn to analyze and identify different forms of conflict; study the Six Principles and Six Steps of Nonviolence; gain a historical perspective on significant nonviolence campaigns that changed laws in the United States; and develop cooperative problem-solving strategies needed to improve communications in the home, school, work or in any community setting by decreasing tension and hostility.
CTCN is a non-profit organization that empowers communities to reconcile conflict through education and the arts. CTCN has worked with hundreds of people to train and implement the philosophy and strategies of Kingian Nonviolence across racial, social, economic and generational divides.
There is no cost for the training for New Haven residents, or people who work in the New Haven community, but registration is required. Please email CTCN at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (860) 570-9075, or contact the SCSU Multicultural Center at (203) 392-5888 for more information.
