About Alexis Dixon
Resolving conflict requires more than just hearing each party’s grievances. You must also set aside predisposed opinions and feelings; practice intentional listening: reduce issues to their purest essence; and find common ground while identifying and respecting non-negotiable differences. That’s the approach Harvard-trained mediator Alexis Dixon has used during 15 years of successfully resolving challenging disputes.Based in San Diego, Dixon has assisted troubled government agencies, non-profit organizations and Fortune 500 corporations across the U.S. and abroad. Employing humanistic psychotherapy, Dixon leads clients to solutions that honor all parties’ essential interests. In addition to his practice, Dixon lectures at San Diego State University and oversees Notes to Our Sons and Daughters, an art project that shares the wisdom of corporate and societal elders with the next generation.

About the Class: Conflict Resolution Summer Program course is designed with students’ needs and objectives in mind. It is part of the holistic and yet practical curriculum to ensure students learn effective conflict resolution skills.
Principles of the course proceed and build upon sequential and cumulative concepts so the skills learned in the initial sessions will be built upon in later sessions to reinforce the learning experience.
The culmination of each course is a better understanding of reading and video materials and how the student can engage their efforts. Also, the order of concepts, broken into 8 sessions, are intended to: help students develop their conflict resolution skills of understanding conflict, confidentiality, effective communication, intentional listening, invites practice in applying those skills in real life situations and helps students learn to settle potentially explosive situations in a positive and constructive manner.
Mediation can help alleviate the sense of disenfranchisement and powerlessness that some students feel and can help turn a difficult situation into a time of mutual growth and understanding.
Below is an outline of curricular topics: students will: discover principles of conflict resolution; engage in various activities with the concepts to reinforce learning through repetition using “real life” activities as possible; and ultimately, activate the gained knowledge as they incorporate the targeted concepts in the everyday lives.

The underlying philosophy of this course is to give students the tools and vocabulary to resolve conflicts in all areas of their life. Treating others the way you want to be treated is a message that resonates with students of all cultures.
These lessons build upon this philosophy and teach students how to defuse and resolve conflicts - the scope and sequence allow students to rally behind a common vocabulary and set the proper tone for an empathic learning opportunity - students will become confident in resolving conflicts.
Conflicts are a normal and inevitable part of our lives. Students are bound to have conflicts with peers over the course of their school careers. But it isn’t inevitable that these conflicts have to be unproductive, ruin relationships, take time away from academics, or lead to violence. Conflict resolution training is an effective way for students to decrease violence and empower students to better deal with the difficult situations they experience at school, and later as members of society.
