CCR 40 Hour Mediation Skill Training

"I learned so much in a short period of time, and I appreciated the warm, supportive and encouraging atmosphere created by CCR.  Parts of it were intimidating but they made it fun and less scary.  I also appreciated all of the opportunities for feedback.” - Training Participant

CCR's hands-on, practical approach to mediation training ensures participants actively develop conflict resolution skills and techniques.  Upon completion, participants have the necessary skills to mediate in a wide variety of real-world situations.  CCR offers mediation classes to anyone who wants to learn the art of mediation.  Participants and trainers in our program come from diverse professional backgrounds such as law, social work, psychology, HR, non-profit and corporate management.

“This is a challenging, thoughtful course. It is a great value for the amount charged. The skills have many applications, even beyond the CCR mediation process. I highly recommend this program.”
