"What was spectacular in the Basic Mediation class was a different view of life; that conflict is neither good nor bad, but can be worked with by the parties as long as they strive to satisfy their needs rather than negotiate positions. I use these tools in my work all the time."

Confluence: "a flowing together, especially of two or more streams."

There is often powerful turbulence at the place where rivers meet. People, like rivers, may find turbulence at their confluence, where differing goals, needs, skills and styles present obstacles to "flowing together."

A mediator can help people navigate the rapids of change and conflict more skillfully, so they can use the energy of differences for positive results.

The Confluence Center for Mediation and Training - Mary Forst Associates, is a Portland, Oregon based firm providing:

  • conflict resolution services, including mediation and facilitation
  • mediation skills training

to businesses, governments, individuals and non-profit organizations.
