Conflict is a natural part of life. How we deal with it is learned. And many of us have learned to run away, ignore, and further contribute to conflict rather than deal with it productively and positively. When we accept conflict and develop resolution skills, conflict becomes an experience that strengthens friendships, deepens relationships, fosters tolerance, and leads to understanding and compassion. Our programs give children, teens, and adults the skills they need to handle conflict with greater ease and effectiveness. CRC empowers people by teaching nonviolent, creative solutions to conflict and bullying. We seek to reduce violence in our homes, schools, and communities by offering workshops based on CRC themes: cooperation, communication, affirmation, conflict resolution, bias awareness, creative responses to bullying, creative problem-solving, restorative practice, and mediation.

To provide opportunities to develop skills in conflict resolution and harm prevention and repair, CRC offers the following programs:
