Training and conferences play a vital role in the Center's mission to promote and increase the appropriate use of alternative dispute resolution processes. Effective training for both practitioners and decision-makers gives participants an understanding of dispute resolution techniques and their applicability to family, business, organizational and congregational life.
In addition to our general training activities open to the public and the programs describes in our web pages, the Center also provides customized training for agencies, business, and congregations. Please contact the Center or Tony Belak if you have over 10 people to train in dispute resolution processes.
