Created by seasoned conflict management experts, our diverse faculty brings deep dive experience into an array of important, contemporary topics in the field.
Our professional services are grounded in a deep understanding of the multi-disciplinary knowledge required to deal with deeply entrenched issues, and hard practical experience.
CECM's flagship training focus is on delivering the high quality, practical workshops that make up our comprehensive Certificate Program. Aspiring practitioners come to us to obtain the required educational component to qualify for professional designations, while experienced practitioners come to continue their education, further refine their skills and stay abreast of current issues.
CECM's Spectrum of Engagement & Conflict Management is unique and focuses on all stages of addressing conflict - from proactive prevention to complete closure.
To complement our training, CECM engages in two other key endeavours -
(1) The CECM Journal (JCECM) - a peer-reviewed journal that publishes timely and provocative works without paywalls. The Journal is available on CanLII and its contributions have been included in courses in institutions such as the University of Calgary Faculty of Law, Osgoode Hall Law School and Durham College. Works are published upon peer approval and accumulated annually in full volumes.
(2) Contemporary Issues in Engagement and Conflict Management Seminar Series - our CECM Faculty members and special guests present seminars about contemporary, leading edge or troublesome issues. Typically two hours long, all proceeds from the $40 registration fees are donated to selected charities (please click here for information about these charities).
We, and our volunteer contributors, also house and support ADR Athletics, a web hub dedicated to supporting the health and wellness of conflict management practitioners.
