Integrating peacemaking into counseling courses

Counseling courses provide a rich opportunity to integrate peace and peacemaking skills into the psychology curriculum. The interpersonal skills taught in a counseling psychology course are central to conflict transformation strategies — negotiation, mediation, and advocacy. The presenting problems of clients often include issues of conflict and thus provide an opportunity to study the nature of conflict  a topic often neglected in other psychology courses.
