Free monthly online clinics providing information on conflict resolution.

Mediate BC receives many calls every week from members of the public who want to understand how mediation works, how to select a mediator, how to ask another person to mediate, and many more questions about how to access the tools to solve their problems collaboratively. These clinics offer you an opportunity to have your questions answered directly by a mediator.

CLE BC will be hosting a free public talk as part of Conflict Resolution Week and the Virtual Conflict Resolution Conference 2020.

In partnership with the CLE Virtual Conflict Resolution Conference 2020, please join us for this attendee-driven event where you choose the speakers! Registrants submit ideas for presentations and, two weeks prior to the event, everyone who registered votes on the topics they'd most like to hear! Presenters can choose between 5 minute, 15, minute, or 30 minute formats. 

Topics will be relevant to the field of Conflict Resolution and the focus is on building on the collective wisdom and applying great ideas to practice. We highly encourage presenters to think about participant engagement beyond the traditional Q&A. We challenge you to make attending on Zoom as fun and as tactile as possible!

Expect to meet collaborative conflict resolution minded people who will challenge your standard way of doing things. Come to discuss and build creative experiences with your fellow practitioners!
