Identity-Based Conflict
Understanding Identity Needs and Deep-Rooted Conflict
3-Day Reflective Seminar
July 9, 10 and 11, 2024


Address conflicts at a deeper level and achieve more dignifying and sustainable processes and outcomes.

Our communities aim to uphold dignity and respect in daily interactions, relationships, and organizations, ensuring full acknowledgement and inclusion for everyone.

Why This Seminar Matters
In today's world, conflicts often simmer beneath the surface, fuelled by differences and competing interests. Our interactions can quickly turn toxic when assumptions, bias, and intolerance take hold. This leads to polarization, dehumanization, cruelty, violence, and entrenched conflicts.

When identities are threatened, individuals or groups may react strongly, even violently. Understanding what lies beneath people's identities can prevent conflicts from arising and shed light on emotional triggers.

This seminar equips you with a profound understanding of identity-based conflicts and enhances your ability to find lasting resolutions, whether you're a leader, manager, or peace practitioner. You'll learn the essential components of such conflicts and build confidence in handling various situations, including coaching, group facilitation, and mediation.
