Omaha, NE (PRWEB) February 18, 2013
Faculty from the Negotiation and Dispute Resolution program at Creighton University will speak and the university will be an exhibitor at the American Bar Association’s 15th annual Section of Dispute Resolution conference. The annual conference takes place April 3-6, 2013, at the Fairmont Chicago Millennium Park in Chicago, Ill.
The conference brings together mediators, arbitrators, attorneys, scholars and other leaders in the field to learn about the field and from each other. As part of that goal, Creighton University faculty members who are recognized leaders in this developing field will speak at length as part of the conference events. Noam Ebner, Jacqueline Font-Guzman, Bernie Mayer and Palma Strand will discuss “Trust as Social Adhesive: Implications for Negotiation, Conflict Intervention and Governance.” The presentation will cover the issue of trust as it has evolved in the field, the effect culture has on how individuals and societies treat trust and the application of interpersonal trust in large-scale situations. The presentation is scheduled for Thursday, April 4, from 9:45 to 11:00 a.m.
Representatives from Creighton will also be on hand as exhibitors to offer information and answer questions about the University’s acclaimed Master of Science and Graduate Certificate in Negotiation and Dispute Resolution programs, obtainable both on campus and online.
Creighton’s master’s and graduate certificate programs in Negotiation and Dispute Resolution, offered through the Werner Institute housed within Creighton’s School of Law, teach students to approach conflict management and mediation from a broad perspective. The curriculum focuses on techniques for analyzing issues within conflict situations, identifying areas of shared interest and facilitating productive communication to engage in conflict more constructively. Coursework is interdisciplinary, drawing from business, organizational development, psychology, sociology and communication to prepare students for all aspects of the conflict resolution process.
