Conflict occurs in all areas of life. Have you ever thought about seeking additional training to deal with difficult (or even ordinary) conflict? If so, register now for an opportunity to be trained in basic mediation!
The Community Mediation Center, located at 4801 Colonial Drive, Columbia, SC 29203, is offering a 24 hour course "Basic Training Mediation", from 9:00 AM - 6:00 PM on January 26th - 28th of 2010 (you must attend all sessions). The 24 hour training will prepare anyone -- including parents, educators, business and human resource professionals -- to begin mediating conflicts.
An additional bit of great news is that the $150 registration fee will be waived for participants who are being sponsored through community organizations, including churches. All that's required for this discount is that the individual receiving church sponsorship must agree to act as a mediator in the future for members of their neighborhood or community as part of the Community Mediation Center's Community Mediator Initiative.
Questions should be directed to Timothy or Dorothy at the Community Mediation Center, phone 803-714-1176.
If you're interested in attending this training, the time is now to block out the days on your calendar and to ask your church or other nonprofit community organization to sponsor you!
