Training of Conflict Transformation Trainers

Two opportunities for intensive 10-day training: Detroit, Michigan / Kiev, Ukraine

An intensive and extensive Training of Conflict Transformation Trainers (TCTT) will take place in the Detroit area, June 2-11, 2015.  The training will be taught by Daniel Buttry, a global consultant for peace and justice.1dan

The TCTT will focus on the following topics:  conflict analysis, conflict resolution, personal conflict styles, dealing with diversity in conflict, power issues, nonviolent struggle, strategizing for campaigns, trauma, reconciliation, practical issues for peacemaking over the long-haul, and experiential education principles, methodologies and practices.  The training will have a specifically Christian focus, utilizing Bible studies for many of the topics.  The participants will also engage in community spiritual practices during the training period.  All the training will be done in an experiential education mode. The TCTT is what I call the "university of the streets."

The registration fee is $600, which includes simple room accommodations and meals for the ten days of the training. Contact Daniel Buttry (DButtry@comcast.net / tel. 586.879.8146) at for more details.  The deadline for registration is April 1, 2015.

Another 10-day Training of Conflict Transformation Trainers will take place in Kiev, Ukraine, May 5-14, 2015, for people from Europe, the Middle East, and Central Asia.  (Travel days are May 4 and 15.) The training will be taught by Daniel Buttry, a global consultant for peace and justice.

The training will focus on the following topics:  conflict analysis, conflict resolution, personal conflict styles, dealing with diversity in conflict, power issues, nonviolent struggle, trauma, reconciliation, practical issues for peacemaking over the long-haul, and experiential education principles, methodologies and practices.  The training will have a specifically Christian focus, utilizing Bible studies for many of the topics.  The participants will also engage in community spiritual practices during the training period.  All the training will be done in an experiential education mode. It will be intense, but very energizing! The training has definite academic dimensions, but it is also much "grittier" and with more "people's movement" components—what I call "the University of the Streets."

The training will be held at the Ukraine Evangelical Theological Seminary on the outskirts of Kiev.  The registration fee is US$500 or 400 Euros, which includes room (double occupancy) and meals for the ten days of the training, training materials, local transportation to group activities, transportation from and back to the airport, and other training related expenses.

There are limited scholarships available for registration and/or transportation based on need.  Contact Daniel Buttry (DButtry@comcast.net / tel. 586.879.8146) at for more details.  The deadline for registration is February 1, 2015. English will be the language for the training, so workable capacity in English is required.
