"[This training] spoke on real issues." "Real solutions were given."One of the services we offer at the Mediation Center is fee-for-service trainings and workshops. Last month we were invited to the United Federation of Teachers' Brooklyn Families and Educators Conference to teach a workshop on conflict resolution 101.
We had over 30 folks attend the workshop who reported back to us that they appreciated learning new ways to resolve conflict and would recommend the training to other parents so they could use some of the tools we provided in their day-to-day lives. Although some people might at first think of conflict resolution techniques as idealistic or unrealistic, many participants told us that we provided real-life solutions to conflict that they intended to use; just the kind of feedback we were hoping for.
