New York Peace Institute (NYPI) trainings build your dispute resolution skills, helping to improve team cohesion and resolve differences in the garden. With a focus on mediation skills, NYPI helps you navigate difficult conversations, manage disagreements, and address challenges creatively.

This training draws on the tools mediators use to resolve conflict and helps community members communicate effectively. ‘Tough Conversations’ explores the classic responses to conflict, what active listening looks like in practice, and key mediation and de-escalation skills. This training gives provides a roadmap to navigate tough conversations and come up with solutions that last.
