Mediation is a conflict resolution process in which a neutral mediator assists the parties through constructive discussion and negotiation of their issues in order to reach a mutually acceptable resolution. NCRC has two branches of professional mediation services: Divorce mediation is an affordable alternative to litigating in court for resolving all family law issues before, during, and after the divorce or legal separation; and West Coast Resolution Group provides affordable mediation services to the public and legal community. NCRC also offers pro-bono mediation services for select community cases, which are described more under “Community Services”.
Contemplating divorce or separation but not sure what next steps to take? Join us at one of our informative workshops, which will help you decide how to proceed with your family law issues.
The Community Services division is at the heart of NCRC’s mission. NCRC provides no-cost mediations for community based disputes and offers communication training to at-risk populations. Through three key initiatives – Avoiding the Pipeline to Prison, a program to keep youth out of the juvenile justice system and in school; the Galinson Campus Civility Program, an initiative that encourages young leaders on college campuses to learn effective communication strategies to use throughout their lives; and the Empowerment Initiative, a program designed to equip the most at-risk populations in our society with basic communication skills to help them effectively cope with the world outside - NCRC hopes to strengthen its mission of Empowering People & Transforming Cultures.
Conflicts arise in every aspect of life—at home and work, in classrooms and communities. When effective communication strategies reveal common ground, people are empowered to overcome differences. The National Conflict Resolution Center provides services and training that transform conflict into resolution.
