Courses: Dynamics of Power


Course Details:
This course has pre-requisites, please confirm that you have taken the required courses before registering for this class. Students who register without meeting these requirements will be withdrawn from the course. This course will provide you with an opportunity to examine critical questions regarding your personal relationship with power. What is power? How do we relate it on a daily basis? How do we use personal power and influence in conflict or negotiation situations? What is the basis of our power as we work to resolve disputes and implement restorative practices, and what are the implications of using that power? Learn how to recognize the power base of others, and the implications that power dynamics have in dispute resolution and restorative practice. Through video simulations, self-reflective exercises and small-group discussions, you will become more comfortable with power dynamics and identify how power can be used positively to enhance the dispute resolution process.
