Conflict Resolution Workshops and Training
Conflict is a part of our everyday lives and believe it or not conflict can lead to positive results; shared ideas, new perspectives and stronger relationships. On the other hand conflict can be exhausting, limiting and destructive if not managed correctly.
Building on 10 years experience in Conflict Resolution Cyrenians set up the Scottish Centre for Conflict Resolution (SCCR) as a national resource centre promoting and supporting best practice in mediation, family conflict resolution and early intervention.
The Scottish Centre for Conflict Resolution runs a series of free open training sessions, seminars and conferences across Scotland. Our events focus on conflict resolution as a means of early intervention which improve relationships and lives and ultimately reduces youth homelessness. More information is available on the SCCR events page.
Our Conflict Resolution Workshops are available to secondary schools and youth organisations working with young people aged 14-24 in Edinburgh, Midlothian, East Lothian, Falkirk, Stirling and Fife. We approach conflict and anger management in a fun and positive way, using group games and problem-solving challenges.

We sometimes produce videos and other resources for teachers, parents, young people and anyone else in need of conflict resolution. These are available (or soon will be available) on our Conflict Resolution Service resources page, starting with "Resolving Conflict with Jamie and Mr Clubber", a video that looks at that looks at that most complex of emotions: anger.
