Conflict Resolution Center to present mediation training

The Conflict Resolution Center of Nevada County will present its annual mediation certification training from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Oct. 17-19 at the Association of Realtors Esterly Hall, 336 Crown Point Circle in Grass Valley.

Every year CRC, a non-profit community-based volunteer mediation service, presents this training teaching the skills necessary to become a trained mediator. CRC mediates for the courts of Nevada County as well as private mediation with a sliding scale fee.

In this course trainees will learn the stages of mediation, how to facilitate communication, how to convene and open a mediation, balancing neutrality and fairness, managing emotions, ethical concerns of mediators and advocates, how to use intangible interests to overcome impulse and much more.

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. Trained mediators help the disputants as neutral third parties by facilitating communication and resolving disputes whereby the disputants can craft their own agreement.

Internship hours available for trained mediators. Participants who completes the course will receive a certificate as a certified mediator.

Total registration fee is $295 per registrant; group discounts and limited scholarships are also available. Register online at or call 530-477-6517 for further information.
