Teaching Your Students Conflict Resolution Skills

Course #:

EDDU 9640


3 semester hours of graduate credit from University of Massachusetts Global.



Course Description

Today, more than ever, students are facing confrontations, stress, personal problems, unrealistic expectations, disagreements and hurtful situations. Their ability to engage and think through each of these challenges, not only impacts their performance in the classroom, but their overall mental health as well. With the dramatic rise in students experiencing mental health issues, we know that they need to understand and be able to implement conflict resolution strategies to address each of these challenges.


In this course, we will provide participants with a variety of conflict resolution models, citing the pros and cons of each model, what age group each works best with and strategies for incorporating the teaching of the different models into their existing curriculum. They will be asked to determine which model would work best for their students population and how they will use it in their lessons.


The goal will be for teachers to provide their students with the knowledge and skills to address any conflicts they have in their lives.
