Field Training

Joshua learned from some of the top practitioners while in the field traveling to Isreal/Palestine, Brazil, Marrocco, the Philippines and more. while working in mediation type capacities, he worked with these practitioners on projects spanning peace education projects, peace building initiatives with the United Nations and he worked on research based work to achieve the goals of each trip.

Since his first course in 2015 by Mediators Beyond Borders Joshua has been exhilarated by the art of mediation. Facilitating others to find solutions and the building of bonds between parties. Always learning and exploring with his peers at the United Nations, Joshua has dedicated much of his life to finding solutions. in his role at Nonviolence International New York he has had the opportunity to connect & partner with hundreds of Experts and organizations in the field.

Joshua has not only had the official certifications and trainings (listed below) but in the 9 conflict zones that Joshua has worked in, he has had practical trainings by leaders in the field on topics like Unarmed Civilian Protection in Siberia, Interventions in Peacebuilding and Engagement with local communities in the Philippines, & in Washington DC Joshua learned nonviolent action and Conflict Mitigation.
