Controversial Issues Train The Trainer

The NCBI Controversial Issues Process gives leaders a way to take on some of the most heated contemporary debates, including abortion, capital punishment, immigration, same-sex marriage, environmental policy, and assisted suicide, as well as regional and local issues of significance. Discussing these topics is difficult even for the most seasoned of leaders because the questions they raise challenge core beliefs and evoke strong emotions.

Within an organization or community, an internal resource team can be trained to lead the Controversial Issues Process. The NCBI train-the-trainer model offers these important qualities:

  • Participants meet often in small learning groups where they receive individual coaching and practice in leading major process components.
  • The combination of emotional healing work and practical skill training enables participants to learn quickly in a safe environment that values individual initiative.
  • NCBI’s seasoned training teams, representing a wide variety of backgrounds, coupled with the diversity of the participants, provide a valuable resource that helps participants better understand and apply the skills.

This Training has no official prerequisite, but attending the one-day Controversial Issues Process in advance is suggested. Contact us to arrange for skilled and experienced NCBI leaders to conduct an on-site Train-the-Trainer.
