Upcoming Panel Discussion: Talk It Out -Resolving Conflicts in the Family, in the Community, and in the Workplace

Conflict is a part of life and it affects all of us. It can include disputes between family members, neighbors, a co-worker or a boss, or the school principal.   It can also include disputes between a landlord and a tenant, a customer and a business, a boss and an employee, principals and teachers versus parents and students, parties to a formal contract, and even issues like responsibility for a pet’s actions.

Come hear about various mediation options from a panel of experienced conflict resolution experts to resolve these disputes. Join us from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, June 3, at the Burke Branch Library, 4701 Seminary Rd., Alexandria (right off #395 exit at Seminary East).  The program is co-sponsored by the Alexandria Library and the Northern Virginia Media Service (NVMS), Fairfax, VA.

There is no charge for the program and light refreshments will be served.

Learn how mediation can work for you. And if you can’t resolve these conflicts, the panelists will help you to understand the process for taking your dispute to the Small Claims Courts—in Alexandria, Arlington and Fairfax.  What you don’t know can hurt you, regarding finances, property, employment, relationships and your credit report.

Free parking is available on site.  For any questions on the program, contact Izabela Solosi, NVMS Training Program Manager, at training@nvms.us or at 703-865-7261.
