Check-out who's (finally) scheduled for the Texas Conflict Coach's stellar radio show!
On October 16th, I'll be joining Pattie Porter's always impressive and fresh line-up of interesting speakers with a show titled: "The State and Growth of Community Mediation." (Definitely also give a listen to Brad Heckman's earlier show featuring his work at the mighty New York Peace Institute.)
I owe some big thanks to Pattie for her generous invitation, her active interest in community mediation, and her persistence in getting this scheduled! She's both delightful online and fabulously photogenic!
Read the complete details below the break, including how you can call-in live to participate in some exciting community-focused Q&A. Looking forward to hearing from you ON AIR!
Executive Director, NAFCM
Each year, community mediators help nearly a million people in conflicts all manner of vexing variation. From schoolyard bullying to co-worker conflicts, nuisance neighbors to deeply personal family fights, community mediation programs bring constructive conflict resolution services to the masses. They mediate, facilitate, coach, train, and much more. These programs and volunteers do all this with industry-leading credentials and dogged dedication, but, often, not much more. Tune in to hear Justin R. Corbett, Executive Director of the National Association for Community Mediation, speak about the State of Community Mediation within the U.S., the potential which motivates its momentum, the pitfalls which keep it from even greater progress, and the future of this influential field.
Justin is the Executive Director of NAFCM, the National Association for Community Mediation.

He has graduate degrees from Pepperdine University’s Strauss Institute for Dispute Resolution, Indiana University, and the University of Cambridge. He lives in Mesa, Arizona with his wife Wendy, who is also deeply passionate about community mediation.
