At The Conflict Center, we see conflict as an opportunity to build and deepen relationships and solve problems creatively. Through trainings and classes, participants expand empathy and translate anger into productive actions and behaviors. Join us and become a peacemaker in your home, school and community.
For over 30 years The Conflict Center (TCC) has forwarded its mission to prevent physical, verbal and emotional violence by partnering with individuals and communities to shift perceptions, attitudes and behaviors through education and skill-building.
"I'm trying to be courageous and realize that conflict is not negative. Instead thinking 'How can we figure this out together?'"
-Adult Participant from "Addressing Conflict and Anger Effectively" Class.
"I think that literature and storytelling is one of the best ways to build compassion in children. Reading for Peace aligns with the skills we have been learning and practicing in the classroom." - Teacher with Reading for Peace Program
"I've been able to develop a relationship with my mom because of some of the skills I learned in here. It's not perfect, but it's better." - School-Based Youth Class Participant
"I have noticed a 100% transformation of my students over the school year! The children are kind to each other, and they demonstrate peaceful problem-solving skills on a daily basis." - Teacher, Place Bridge Academy
"I've learned to have the general thought that in all conflicts the goal is to achieve a healthy resolution. It may not happen, but having that goal helps prevent me from being defensive or adding fuel to the conflict." -Adult Participant from "Addressing Conflict and Anger Effectively" Class.
“Next time I experience conflict, I will express how it has impacted me in the form of affective statements. I will be mindful of my role in the conflict and try to collaborate to resolve the conflict by healing harm.” -Teacher from Restorative Practices Workshop.
