Conflict Resolution Week October 15-21, 2017
The Dispute Resolution Commission and the Dispute Resolution Section of the NCBA join the ABA and ACR in celebrating more than 20 years of mediation and other ADR processes in North Carolina.
CDSS Staff and volunteers joined in the celebration at the NC Judicial Center in Raleigh, where Chief Justice Martin issued a Proclamation designating October 15-21, 2017, as Conflict Resolution Week in NC.
Judge William Webb, the Chair of the Commission, and LeAnn Nease Brown, Section Council Chair also spoke at the event.
CDSS was delighted to work with the Youth Leadership Program through International Focus this summer. On August 4, Kerri Bianchi and our intern, Erica Scott introduced a group of Iraqi students to mediation.
The students learned the nuts and bolts of mediation and then tried out their new skills in engaging roleplays.
The students were enthusiastic about sharing what they learned at home through peer mediation and beyond.
