Alternative Approaches to Resolving Conflict in Churches, Religious Organizations, Nonprofits, Schools and Community Groups: What Papa & Roberts Can Do to Help
Conflict in our communities can be costly and painful experiences. Mediation services and conflict resolution training are excellent methods for resolving conflict in a respectful and positive way. The professionals of Papa & Roberts, PLLC offer cutting edge mediation and conflict resolution training services for churches, synagogues, neighborhood associations, schools, nonprofits and other community groups to help these organizations function more smoothly, move through conflict with grace and ease and resume focus on the mission of their organization by dealing with conflict effectively and efficiently. Our professionals can assist organizations and community groups in a wide variety of settings, both large and small groups, to resolve conflict.
Conflict within religious, neighborhood and other communities can be particularly painful. Statistics show that approximately 80% of a minister or religious leader's time is spent managing conflict, though many of these leaders have never received any type of conflict resolution training. Papa & Roberts offers mediation services to help your church, synagogue, or other religious or community organization understand and resolve your conflict so that your community can begin moving toward healing and peace. We also train internal, congregational mediators who can volunteer to help resolve conflict both internal and external to your organization. These services can also be extremely beneficial for easing pastoral or organization leader transition or other internal organization change.
