Community Solutions - formerly Central Oregon Mediation - serves the communities of Crook, Deschutes, and Jefferson counties in Central Oregon. We help people have difficult conversations by providing a variety of comprehensive mediation, facilitation, and education programs focused on improving communications needed during life's more difficult moments. As a long-standing community dispute resolution center (CDRC), our staff and more than 35 volunteer mediators are highly qualified and capable people who continue to offer standard-setting programs and customer service.
What happens when one party to mediation simply doesn't want to come to the table? What about the parent who is having a difficult time dealing with his/her ex-spouse? And the business partner who can't cope with his/her partners' business practices? The list is endless and most of us at one time has had to figure out how to deal with conflict in our lives. In the absence of mediation for two or more parties; enter 'Conflict Coaching' for the individual as a viable service option. If you are a mediator who often wonders '...how will this person cope with this situation and/or person moving forward?' you will not want to miss this discussion. Join our staff in the Community Solutions main conference room on Wednesday, December 11th from 11:00 am - 12:00 pm to learn more!
