Mike teachers CTRI workshops in the areas of violence prevention, restorative justice, and conflict resolution. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a Certificate in Conflict Resolution, and has over twenty years of experience as a leader in the conflict resolution and violence prevention field. He believes that learning is a life-long endeavor and that the process of development should be enjoyable and motivating. As a facilitator, Mike uses his experiences working in a manufacturing environment, inner-city drop-in, boys camp, and as a mediator to illustrate the material.  He has an interactive and engaging style that easily motivates participants to incorporate workshop material into their own environments.
