Mediation and Conflict Resolution Training

Mediation Services of Adams County leads Mediation and Conflict Resolution trainings once or twice a year, usually in the spring and the fall.

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.
