2018 Training Information

Mediation Services of Adams County announces that their 3-day workshop, originally scheduled for February 28, March 1, and
March 2, 2018, has been postponed until the fall.

Annual Conflict Resolution and Mediation Training

2018 Training Dates:

1st Session: TBD

2nd Session: TBD

3rd Session: TBD

Venue: TBD

Topics include conflict styles, active listening, communication skills, negotiation, mediation, and role-plays, which are extensively employed in order to practice resolving disputes of various types. Professionally trained and certified mediators from Mediation Services of Adams County will conduct all training sessions.

Dispute resolution skills are useful in the workplace, family, service organizations, municipalities, and community agencies. Mediation in particular is a dispute resolution technique designed to resolve problems which develop between people in many different settings. Individuals sit down with a trained mediator and work towards a mutually agreeable solution. Negotiation is a more informal one-on-one approach useful in everyday life.

The cost for the workshop is $275. Non-profit organizations and churches may send one person to the training for $75; however, additional participants from that agency must pay the regular registration fee. Fees should be paid under the aegis of the sponsoring organization. Anyone who has previously taken the workshop and wishes to refresh his/her skills may enroll free of charge but should register using the current registration form.  Lunches are included in the registration fee.

For more information or to obtain a registration form call 717-334-7312 or
e-mail mediationac@yahoo.com. Updated registration forms will be made available at
the Adams County Library, the YWCA, and this website.

All checks should be made payable to Mediation Services of Adams County.
