Learn more about the PhD in Conflict Resolution and what it can do for your career...

psychologist

Regardless of context, whether it be within families, organizations or communities, arriving where we wish to be in our relationships, business goals or community goals requires the surmounting of obstacles through compromise and skilled communication.

We are a world made up of very different people with differing views. While this fact can make the world an interesting place that offers a variety of rich life experiences, it can also lead to difficult road blocks when trying to work together to progress within our lives or organizations. When differing points of view lead to heated emotions or when business markets change and destroy the viability of business plans, a rational voice coming from someone with highly developed skills in analyzing situations and objectively creating solutions to move forward can be highly valuable.

PhD programs in Conflict Response and Mediation prepare students with the knowledge and skills necessary to successfully help people work through emotional, business and communal crises.
