(Level I – 2016) PSY 478 Kingian Nonviolence Conflict Reconciliation Course, URI
Taking this course has made me more aware of the different types of conflict that exist and the methods of approaching a solution. I find myself approaching conflicts more calmly now. I take a step back and really think about the issue at hand, which was something I didn’t do before. I have definitely benefited from taking this course!
Upon receiving my level 1 certification, I have learned the importance of handling conflicts effectively. I find myself taking a more active approach to situations instead of standing in the background and remaining quiet. I am glad that I took the course because I have not only gained a new interest in the field of nonviolence, but I have also found myself using what I have learned in my everyday life. Finally, I plan to take the knowledge I have gained with me wherever I may go in the future.
