Course Details

Inspired by Diana Francis’s 2015 Swarthmore lecture and the experience of three courses run by her and Steve Whiting in 2015, this course seeks to increase participants’ understanding of what causes violence and the approaches that underpin nonviolent approaches to peace making. We will explore how our faith can support us in practising nonviolence and working towards positive peace.Two further courses planned for 2018 will support participants to learn more deeply and identify practical ways of taking action.

Tracey Martin is a Turning the Tide facilitator and international development practitioner. She is on the QPSW Overseas Peacebuilding Sub-Committee.
Ivan Hutnik lived for twenty years in India, works as a consultant and coach and has trained as a psychotherapist.
