Association for Conflict Resolution - Greater New York Chapter

 promotes learning and dialogue within the ADR community. The Family and Community Practice Group has been meeting since 2021 and typically meets from 6:00pm to 7:15pm on Zoom. Our Practice Groups are confidential spaces where mediators can come together to look back at past mediations and give each other honest feedback.

Most mediators work in "silos," making it difficult to find spaces to talk to others in their field about the challenges and successes they encounter in their mediation sessions. This small group is designed to provide mediators an opportunity to "Monday night quarterback" their recent mediation decisions and strategies, as well as an opportunity to solicit feedback and advice regarding active mediations. 

Family and Community Mediation Practice Group 

Title: Tips, Tricks and Tough Times:  A small circle to share family and community mediation stories

Our guest facilitator will be Maurice Q. Robison, Esq., PHR
