This program follows YOUCAN Ottawa’s teaching of conflict resolution skills, which has been successful for twenty years. Students begin by exploring the communication and decision-making skills needed in conflict resolution. Next, they adopt the roles of key officials engaged in an emergency, to practice those skills. Lastly, students reflect on how these same skills can help them in everyday situations.
