Conflict Resolution Day

Today, October 18, 2007, is Conflict Resolution Day. According to the Association for Conflict Resolution, “Conflict Resolution Day is an international celebration held annually on the third Thursday in October.”

Conflict is a common occurrence in human interaction. And we are all aware of some of the common approaches to dealing with conflict, from denial to demonizing those we consider our opponents.

Mediation is an approach to resolving conflicts that allows parties to craft a process that enables them to work with a neutral mediator to reach a resolution that meets their unique needs.
