Submitted to The Union

Conflict Resolution Center of Nevada County will hold their three-day beginning mediation training from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, Oct. 25-27, at the Association of Realtors Building, Esterly Hall, 336 Crown Point Circle, Grass Valley.

During this 25-hour basic mediation skills training, participants will learn how to convene and open a mediation, facilitate communication, encourage problem solving, balance neutrality and fairness, and much more.

Participants will discover effective ways to settle differences and mediate disputes across a variety of contexts. This program will provide participants with core mediation skills and training, along with hands-on experience as a mediator in a variety of simulations.

For over 20 years, the Conflict Resolution Center of Nevada County has worked with the residents, businesses, and organizations of Nevada County to find common ground.

The center is a non-profit provider of conflict resolution and mediation training. The center also mediates for the civil and small claims courts of Nevada County as well as private mediation with a sliding scale fee.

The cost to litigate disputes is enormous. Statistics have proven time and time again that mediation resolves more disputes in less time for less money and with less stress.
