About The Conflict Center

Founded in 1987, The Conflict Center has grown from our founder’s dream to a non-profit organization dedicated to providing the practical skills of peacemaking. We believe that each of us can be at the center of peace in our lives, home and communities. We are committed to our mission and our work is based on our values. The Conflict Center engages in this work in a variety of ways from individual skill-building to macro-level culture building in schools and communities.

When conflict happens in the workplace or people experience inappropriate or difficult behavior at work, relationships are damaged and productivity often suffers.
Workplaces that embrace Restorative Practices have the potential to create a safer, happier and more effective workplace for everyone. Restorative Practices can be used within the workplace both as a preventative measure and to address conflict when it does arise, enabling teams and individuals to work well together.

Restorative Practices can be an effective way to resolve workplace conflict. It involves:
  • bringing together all those affected by conflict
  • providing a safe environment for the expression of perspective
  • allowing participants to come to a shared understanding
  • identifying creative ways to deal with conflict
  • providing opportunities to rebuild damaged relationships and strengthen teams 

Restorative approaches can also be used proactively within the workplace to build strong, positive relationships. Staff meetings, for example, can be focused on building relationships and based around a foundation of mutual respect.
