Civil/Employment Mediation SessionThe Conflict Resolution Center (CRC) offers Civil/Employment Mediation seminars every year to anyone interested in transforming workplace culture. Learn new or add to your existing skills in working more effectively with conflict at work, in your community, neighborhoods and with small claims and civil cases as a party to conflict as well as a third-party mediator.
