Dialogue for Peaceful Change

6th – 11th May, 2018

From Antioch to Zimbabwe more than a thousand people around the world have been trained in the Dialogue for Peaceful Change (DPC) programme.

It was developed by practitioners working in national and international conflict settings. DPC is a hands on  course offering learning about the nature of conflict and practical tools for managing conflict. Participants in the course will learn through lectures, reflections, coaching and real life mediation scenarios.

We would love to welcome you to our next round of DPC training taking place in Corrymeela, Ballycastle from Sunday 6th May to Friday 11th May, 2018.

This training will give valuable tools of mediation and conflict analysis to people in the public sector, healthcare management, education, third sector leadership, community development and business. 

Dialogue for Peaceful Change was developed in a partnership between Ireland’s oldest peace and reconciliation centre Corrymeela and the Dutch organisation Oikos. The 5 day training starts with a look at the causes of conflict and the different methods we use for coping. We then move on to a highly practical approach to finding new ways out of conflict with learning gathered from around the world. The training has been used by mediation professionals, community workers, churches and aid organisations in more than a dozen countries.
