She holds a Master’s Degree in Conflict Resolution and is a certified trainer and coach. Michaela specialises in CT training and consulting, including systemic conflict analysis, (nonviolent) communication, mediation, negotiation, team-building, project cycle management, RPP, PME, Conflict Sensitivity, community mobilising, self-care, training of trainers and creative methodologies for CT such as Theatre of the Oppressed, Psychodrama, and dance.
