About Practice Groups

Conflict resolution practitioners encourage understanding and bridge boundaries. Yet many work alone, with few opportunities to share their questions, frustrations, and ideas with colleagues. ACR-GNY promotes learning and dialogue within the ADR community to provide more support. ACR-GNY series for Commercial/Employment Mediators and Family/Community Mediation Practice Groups are quarterly confidential meetings where mediators can come together to exchange puzzling moments and share honest feedback with one another.

Practice Groups are free for ACR-GNY members and open to nonmembers for $20. Scholarships are available. Registration is limited to ensure each attendee receives individualized attention and time to ask questions and engage in meaningful conversation.
