  • Press Release: MSC Hosts Insight Mediation Workshop | MSC News | MSC
    Make Wise Decisions will be led by Dr Cheryl Picard professor emeritus at Carleton University and principle of Cheryl Picard Associates The workshop will take place May 6 8 2015 at MSC and will be available for university credit or professional development Insight mediation is a style of conflict intervention that was developed as a result of collaboration between two Canadian scholars Dr Picard Carleton University and Dr Kenneth Melchin Saint Paul University They extensively studied successful mediation practice and applied ideas from Bernard Lonergan s theory of insight to develop the insight approach to conflict resolution and mediation The insight approach addresses the complexity of conflict including the role of emotion and the importance of values through the integration of theories of social action with micro communication skills and conflict resolution strategies Participants in this workshop will be encouraged to re think traditional ideas about conflict and conflict intervention as they are introduced to the idea that conflict resolution involves the production of new understandings that help conflicting parties identify and understand the threat experiences and defense responses that create and sustain conflict Emphasis will be placed on the development of skills to de escalate threat narratives through the mediation dialogue as this can change problematic patterns of interaction and enable parties to find ways to either resolve their differences or to live more peacefully with them Dr Picard is an educator mediator and conflict coach specializing in interpersonal workplace and community based conflict for over 35 years Dr Picard brings a relational ideology to her teaching and conflict resolution practice which means she views people as connected to each other through complex webs of relationships patterns of interaction and meaning making For more information or to register visit www mscollege ca academics php s crsworkshop About Menno Simons

  • From the Field: Practicum Reflections from Guatemala | MSC News | MSC
    quiet The local people will generally not be out after dark unless they are going to church The streets are relatively quiet until church starts or lets out when you can see a flow of people coming and going from the evening church service In regards to religion the only faith option here in Santiago is Christian and amongst that you are either Evangelical or Catholic In Santiago those are the only options When roaming the streets of Santiago you will almost always run into children playing or what I love to see a young six year old child holding their baby brother or sister This is a distinct difference for me having grown up in North American helicopter parent culture Parents from where I m from would never leave their baby in the hands of their six year old child to be playing on the streets with rocks and eating dirt This would never occur In Guatemala this is a common scene Kids are out playing with each other with their neighbours friends or siblings Soccer is a popular sport here so you will often see a ball being kicked around This idea of playing outside is one being lost to technology and the World Wide Web in developed countries Therefore I have enjoyed the refreshing sight of kids being kids in the real world getting their hands dirty and where kicking a ball back and forth is not mandatory for gym class but contrarily is the funnest part of their day After exploring the main street and the market a little you get to know certain tips and tricks of what to do and what not to do in these places For example when you walk past a tienda a little store selling anything from beading to bags to blankets you must never touch something unless you want to be coaxed in by the owner to either get good price or to simply come in The local people who sell items here know a very select English vocabulary which they use with tourists Or any white person or gringo as they are called here whether you are just visiting or here long term The people here are very good at making their handicrafts seem like the only and best option even though the stores on either side of them sell very similar things Though they want to sell their product they are kind and simply want to share their culture with you Selling is their livelihood and what they do every single day A very common profession here in Santiago is to sell whether it is food or clothing or bags the local people always have something they can sell you and rely on this day to day income Though I was relatively confident in my Spanish skills when I arrived I was quickly surprised by the amount of people here in Santiago who were not speaking Spanish Tzutujil is the local Mayan language spoken here in Santiago
