Dialogue for Peaceful Change (DPC) is a global training programme developed by practitioners working in national and international conflict settings around the world. 

The DPC methodology offers a practical toolkit and methodology for managing key aspects of both interpersonal and group conflict. Dialogue for Peaceful Change practice revolves around four areas of learning: 

1. The Nature of Conflict—participants experience a variety of activities, reflections and lectures, which enable them to consider their own understanding of their experience of conflict. 

2. DPC Conceptual Framework and Models—participants learn the key conceptual framework of DPC, which includes models which locate and explore the drivers of conflict as well as the role of peace building and mediative behaviour 

3. Conflict Tool Kit and Skills Development—participants then learn a variety of tools, which will add to their previous knowledge and skill sets in order to enhance their work in conflict situations within the community, the workplace and within their own social networks. 

4. Applied Mediation Practice—participants then have the opportunity to apply these new skills through: Intensive coached role–play on mediation scenarios that are based on realistic local conflicts, gathered from all regions in the world. Identifying and recognising need to build and strengthen existing or new patterns of intra and inter agency cooperation to impact synergy, problem solving and enhanced learning to generation a wider added value of the social and economic investment of the programme.
