Is conflict causing chaos in your life?
The Dispute Resolution Center of Kitsap County (DRC), a nonprofit organization, provides mediation, education, and mental health Ombuds services to help individuals, families and organizations resolve conflict. The DRC services offer people in conflict powerful strategies to open communication and find lasting solutions.
What is Mediation? Mediation is a negotiation strategy that uses an impartial, third-party who assists people in talking about their concerns. It is the best opportunity for people to control the outcome of issues that might otherwise be decided within the legal system. Mediation services are a confidential, voluntary alternative to court actions. For more information about mediation, click here.
The DRC offers a variety of training services for people in the workplace and in their private lives. Professional training includes training and development of mediators and conflict resolution training for individuals and organizations. The DRC For Parents training offers a combination of conflict resolution, communication training, and more for parents and professionals.
Our goal, whether in practice or training, is teaching life communication skills to minimize conflict and maximize effective communication.
Our Mission: The Dispute Resolution Center strengthens relationships, families, and communities through mediation, facilitation and training services.
