Mediation program offers ‘Productive Conversations’ course


In a series of conversations hosted by the M.V. Mediation Program, you’ll learn about conflict resolution, reflect on family conflict history, and learn conflict resolution tools to use as a family. This program is geared toward families with older adults, or multigenerational families.

The series takes place on Zoom on upcoming Saturdays, including May 22, 29, and June 5 and 12. There is no cost for the program, which is funded by a grant from MV Bank.

The theme titles are Lifelong Conflict Concepts on May 22; Conflict Styles on May 29; Positions and Interests on June 5, and Values, Needs, Identity, Feelings on June 12.

Families will have time during each class to chat together. You can also schedule a longer family discussion session with a conversation guide at a time that is convenient for you. Conversation guides are trained and qualified mediators and facilitators who have experience working with older adults and families using neutral and supportive discussion techniques.
