Graduates from Carleton’s Graduate Diploma in Conflict Resolution program (GDCR) will have an added perk this year as the program is now fully approved by the Alternative Dispute Resolution Institute of Ontario (ADRIO).
According to Carleton Program Director Rebecca Bromwich: “This means that, when our students graduate, they will be recognized by ADRIO as fully-trained mediators, and will be able to “hang out their shingles.”
GDCR alumnus John Olsthoorn says: “The GDCR program is highly credible and recognized and fits hand-in-glove with ADRIO’s education requirements to becoming a chartered mediator. You can’t ask for more.”
The GDCR, which is unique in Canada, is designed for mid-career professionals who have practical experience as well as current Carleton graduate students. It is an executive-style graduate level program that offers participants the opportunity to engage in contemporary theories and practices of conflict resolution with an emphasis on developing the knowledge and skills to intervene in a variety of conflict contexts.
The program offers a flexible delivery as courses are delivered through full-day, intensive course modules scheduled during weekends throughout the academic year and over the summer.
Students are taught and mentored by conflict resolution professionals and researchers actively engaged in advancing the field of conflict and its resolution, many of whom are associated with the Centre for Conflict Education and Research at Carleton.
Once students have finished their coursework, they will have up to one year to complete a skills assessment that tests their ability to integrate theory and practice in a simulated, real-life situation.
