Conflict Resolution: Theory & Practice (MED2116.01)

Michael M. Cohen

This course will present an interdisciplinary approach to the theory of conflict resolution. Theories of conflict resolution, not mediation skills, will be introduced and then explored through a number of different prisms. These will include the macro issues of the nature of peace, racism, the environment, the media,  as well as the role of religion and the Bible. The relationship of rock “n” roll and the arts to conflict resolution will also be examined. The goal of this course will be to be an introduction to conflict resolution theories and their application to the contemporary world. The course will culminate with students exploring what they would like to do to reduce and or solve conflict. That is to say, put all this theory to practice. Reflections, presentations, and final paper are also part of the syllabus.
