Restorative Practices is recognized as a way to work “with” youth and adults for peaceful results! Here’s an opportunity to gain skills with proven methods for working “with” people in education, criminal justice, youth work, organizations and other settings for positive outcomes. You will learn how to facilitate conflicts that have lasting positive impact for everyone!
Resolving differences. Restoring relationships.
Peaceful communities are places where people want to live and work. They are secure places to raise children. They are cooperative places capable of great things. And they can only be built by people who understand how to communicate and resolve their differences. The Dispute Resolution Center of West Michigan helps people weave a strong fabric of community that brings peace and joy to life.
We help people solve their differences peacefully and constructively, using the services of a trained mediator. This mediator brings both parties together for discussion, and together they create their own solution to the problem. We can help in nearly any type of situation, including landlord-tenant disputes, educational issues, parenting disputes, employee grievances, disagreements between neighbors, small claims issues, and many more.
