CRC’s skilled and experienced mediators guide participants through each phase of the mediation process: identifying problems, clarifying perspectives and concerns, developing viable options and reaching inclusive and mutually satisfying agreements.
Many conflicts are resolved in as little as one mediation session; some conflicts may require a short series of mediated dialogues.
Benefits of CRC Mediation Services:
Find the right mediation service for you below. If you have questions about mediation and how it might help your situation, check our FAQs page.
If you have reached a standstill in a disagreement with a neighbor, or a communication breakdown with your teenager or other family member, our Community Mediation program can help you rebuild a productive relationship.
In this program, we offer mediation to neighbors, couples, friends, relations, business colleagues, landlords/tenants, would-be litigants , and anyone else to whom we may be of use.
You think the landlord owes you more of your security deposit. Your tenant left you with repairs. Your contractor hasn’t finished the job. The personal loan broke down when communication stopped. These and other situations lead people to small claims court, and to judgments that may not satisfy the situation, even if you “win.” It doesn’t have to be that way.
Our Small Claims Diversion program runs much like the Community Mediation program above, and is priced to cost the same or less that your court filing fee would have been. Find out more about the advantages and process of diverting your small claims through mediaiton. Call 475-6117 or Download Diversion flyer.
Conflict in the workplace can cause costly and time-consuming problems that weaken the whole organization. Some of these costs include disrupted workflow, reduced productivity, absenteeism, and lowered motivation and morale. If a workplace conflict is escalating and coworkers are unable to resolve it on their own, CRC’s Workplace Mediation Program can help bring about a satisfying solution. Mediation promotes respectful communication and cooperative problem solving in the workplace.
