The Center:    
IMCR Dispute Resolution Center is the first Community Mediation Center in the City of New York, established in 1975 to address interpersonal disputes in a nonthreatening environment as an alternative to litigation. The Institute offers free mediation and arbitration services involving Interpersonal Disputes, Special Education, Early Intervention, Conflict Coaching, Lemon Law Arbitration, and fee related training in areas such as Community Mediation, Conflict Resolution, Train the Trainer and others, thanks to its pool of qualified Independent Contractors.


The Training: 
The training is experiential, educational, and empowering. It emphasizes a hands-on approach while addressing current trends in mediation. The latest developments in the field are discussed as well as strategies for successful implementation. The workshop is designed to enhance trainees’ facilitation skills, explore a wide variety of conflict scenarios through meaningful role plays and provide the necessary tools to improve personal and interpersonal relationships. In order to allow quality development among our trainees, with the exception of Mercy College students, the Center accepts a maximum of 16 participants. After completion of training, trainees may be eligible to participate in the Center’s apprenticeship program and serve as a volunteer Certified Mediator.
