Conflict resolution skills -
once you've learnt them, you can use them in any situation



Secondary school staff and other professionals working with parents and adolescents can learn this effective model of conflict resolution. Once learned, these skills can be used for resolving conflict and solving problems with individuals or larger groups.

Over the past 10 years, this model has been shown to improve relationships between students, staff and parents.

In today’s climate of international unrest it is more important than ever that we teach young people and families effective ways of resolving conflict as alternatives to fighting. We are pleased to offer your school or agency the opportunity to train staff to teach conflict resolution skills to adolescents and their parents in this program from the award winning Exploring Together Team.
