Foundational skills training provides the training you will need to effectively help people with most conflicts. The purpose of the conflict coaching training is to equip you to help others resolve conflict and reconcile relationships without your direct involvement in the conflict.
This training will teach you how to provide encouragement, godly advice, prayer, support and informal instruction in basic peacemaking to an individual who is struggling with a conflict.
You use conflict coaching skills any time you offer advice or your opinion to a friend, family member or neighbour on how to respond to a conflict.

“I have seen how we hurt each other in conflicts and it saddens me to see families and friendships fall apart. I know that the gospel of Jesus Christ provides both the motivation and the power for us to live peaceably with each other. PeaceWise equips, encourages and supports ordinary people “do relationships better”. I love being involved in the ministry of PeaceWise because there really is no higher privilege (or challenge!) than to personally live and spend time serving others become gospel-centred peacemakers.”
