Unlike professional development programs that focus on skill enhancement, Carleton’s Graduate Diploma in Conflict Resolution program combines an interdisciplinary study of  theoretical foundations of conflict and dispute resolution with practical skills development. Assessment is a critical component of the program. Throughout your studies, you will be encouraged to reflect on the development of your skills and the performance areas that need additional improvement through an Independent Learning Initiative. You will be offered strategies to enhance your skills as an effective conflict manager, mediator, and communicator. Once you have finished your course work, you will participate in an assessment of your ability to mediate real-life conflict situations.
