The IPT Core Course comprises theoretical inputs and practical exercises tailored to work in conflict and post-conflict settings. All modules aim at enhancing interpersonal skills, highlighting the importance of cross-cultural partnerships, and promote a reflective and accountable approach towards peacebuilding and crisis management. Thus, relevant modules include for example concepts and strategies of peacebuilding, conflict analysis, third party intervention, do no harm, gender and social inclusion, project management, stress management, mine awareness as well as a complex simulation exercise to strengthen participants’ skills on how to respond in crisis situations.
Throughout the course, participants will be encouraged to work in groups on specific case studies to apply the acquired skills and knowledge and reflect on how they can transfer the learnings into their own fields of work.
