Mediation Services of Adams County has announced the dates of its annual 22-hour Conflict Resolution training. Beginning on Wednesday, February 28, 2018 from 8:30 AM-4:30 PM, the event will extend over a period of three days at Adams County Department of Emergency Services, located at 230 Greenamyer Lane east of Gettysburg, PA 17325. The second session will meet Thursday, March1 from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM. The third session will continue on Friday, March 2 from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM.

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 per person ($245 for early birds, if payment is made by February 16, 2018). 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.
