Our Institute presents unique ways to teach the Kingian philosophy and Nonviolence conflict reconciliation strategies to your students.
Our trainers have years of experience and unique backgrounds. Their presentation styles are captivating! As one teacher stated, "I loved the unique, diverse, eclectic, dynamic team!"
An important part of our training is investigating ways to enhance classroom and school communities so that they reflect the Kingian goal of creating the Beloved Community.
"Before training I wasn't sure how to settle conflicts between students. After training I was given concrete steps to solve conflicts that arise in the classroom as well as strategies to reconcile differences between the students."
"The teaching of the Principles has restructured my self-concept and my world view, bringing me so much joy and peace as well as a purpose-filled life."
Our Winter Institute took place on three consecutive Saturdays beginning on the MLK Weekend, January 18, then January 25 and ended February 1, 2020. We are pleased to have certified 21 educators!
In response to the emotional and physical violence that has become pervasive in society, and the need for educators to learn Nonviolence strategies to address these conflicts, NSRI conducted an innovative initiative that will address the urgent need to create more peaceful and inclusive classroom and school environments. The Nonviolent Schools Summer Institute was attended by educators who were interested in learning practical strategies to transform the climate and culture of their schools. The event was held at the University of Rhode Island Kingston campus.
