Training in conflict resolution has always been part of the U.S. Institute of Peace’s services to governments, organizations and individual practitioners. The Institute now offers 12 new introductory “micro-courses” online for anyone. Topics include conflict analysis, mediation, gender issues in peacebuilding, and designing and evaluating conflict resolution programs. The courses are free and take about three hours each. Students earn certificates upon completion.
I am a career coach, consultant, and head of a not for profit - the Forage Center - that offers humanitarian education training. I also teach at George Mason University and Drexel University. A one time lawyer, I spent many years teaching in a community college where I was a Fulbright U.S. Scholar teaching in Estonia. I'm the author of Peace Jobs: A Student's Guide to Starting a Career Working for Peace (IAP 2016). I've been married to my best friend for over 31 years and we have two well adjusted adult children who teach me something new everyday. I live in Rockville, Maryland.
