Welcome to our website. Mediation is thriving in our state: from neighborhoods, to the workplace, to communities, and into our courthouses. Mediation is easy on the people, hard on the problem, and tolerable for the wallet. We provide information about resolution of conflict as a public service and support consumer education on the use and benefit of mediation.
Meet Pete Schloss, a pioneer in mediation in Missouri
Our recent member teleseminar highlighted the career and insights of Pete Schloss, one of our charter members, who has "indefinitely suspended practice" (retired) in pursuit of the good life. During the hour long chat, Pete mentioned that an important lessons learned is for a mediator to be his or her authentic self and engage with mediation participants on a personal level, More insights from Pete will be discussed in our Fall newsletter. (See "Trainings" for upcoming teleseminar topics).
