About Us

CDRC’s mission is TO FOSTER CONSTRUCTIVE RESPONSES TO CONFLICT. 

CDRC accomplishes its mission by: 

*using the mediation process and mediation skills to facilitate communication between individuals and groups 

*facilitating processes that enable each person to make the best choices he or she is capable of making 

*facilitating processes that enable each person to understand another’s perspective and respect that person’s choice 

*educating people about conflict 

*teaching people to respond constructively to their own conflicts 

*teaching people to help others who are involved in conflict 

*partnering with organizations in the community to develop policies and programs that foster constructive responses to conflict 

*modeling an organization that welcomes differences, care of the people who work with it, and deals with its own conflicts in constructive ways. 

We envision a future in which CDRC is the lead resource for nurturing constructive responses to the conflicts that inevitably occur in our communities. As a result of our work, the three counties we serve are places where individuals value themselves, value others, and value relationships. 

Specifically, we envision communities where: 

  • People accept the inevitability of conflict and understand what it does to human interactions 
  • People are willing to ask for help when conflict makes decision-making difficult 
  • People are able to encourage others who are involved in conflict to seek help 
  • Everyone knows someone with the knowledge and skills to help others who are involved in conflict 
  • All are encouraged to explore the creative tension between autonomy and connection with others
