The Compassionate Conflict Management group of tracks includes four areas of focus:

  3. Compassionate Policing & Peacekeeping
  4. Compassionate Violence Prevention and Restoration

Compassionate Conflict Management

Compassionate Conflict Management (CCM) is a new, advanced, and research-based form of conflict resolution that enfolds and transcends existing approaches to conflict management. Developed by the International Center's Ari Cowan and Tony Belak, JD, this new approach incorporates Tony's substantial background and rich experience in conflict management with Ari's Integrative Conflict Management Model (ICM2) to deepen and increase the effectiveness of the mediation process.

Compassionate Trust Leadership

Compassionate Trust Leaders are trained organizational staff, community members, and professionals who provide information about compassionate conflict management; are an active voice for compassion, understanding, and the working out of differences, and are trusted members of their professions, organizations, or community social, faith-based, political, or other groups.

Compassionate Policing & Peacekeeping

The International Center is engaged in a pilot compassionate policing program with a major metropolitan police department in the United States. This program will provide information and experience that will help develop a full curricula for policing and international peacekeeping agencies worldwide.

Compassionate Violence Prevention and Restoration

The Integrative Violence Prevention and Restoration (PAR) Model is a new, evidence-based, cognitive approach to violence response and prevention built upon a public health foundation. It is a significant departure from the traditional “punitive” model for dealing with violence. The PAR Model incorporates new thinking about and language for describing violence, provides a new framework for preventing and responding to violence, and presents an effective alternative to the commonly-used traditional punitive-based approaches for dealing with violence.
