Peacemaking Institute

3 Units
This Online/Hybrid course is for FUSD educators only; it will meet on ZOOM Monday through Friday, June 22-26, 2020, from 9am - 12:30pm.

The Center for Peacemaking Basic Institute focuses on the fundamentals of peacemaking in the pursuit of 'shalom.' Shalom is a Hebrew word meaning wholeness, completeness, harmony, prosperity, welfare, tranquility and peace. Restorative justice is an approach in the larger framework of peacemaking, making it possible to move from brokenness to wholeness, trauma to healing, and harm to restoration.

This course provides a solid foundation in understanding conflict and pathways to resolve and transform conflict. Models for analyzing, responding to, and transforming conflict will be provided and applied to case studies presented and shared throughout the course.
