Winding Down My Practice

After 25 years in the field of conflict resolution, I have decided to wind down my practice. If you are looking for conflict resolution training or a mediator, please refer to the links section of this website for the names and contact information for a number of experienced and very capable colleagues.

I will continue to offer "The Joy of Teaching Conflict Resolution" to those who want to add activities and exercises to their conflict trainings.
