Mediation Counseling Available to Families for Help Dealing with the Holidays

Saturday, December, 24, 2016

Family squabbles are a common thread throughout families during the holidays, and now one Connecticut legal organization is hoping to provide a peaceful solution. Connecticut Mediation and Arbitration Services, LLC in Guilford is offering mediation to families to help them resolve their conflicts during the upcoming holiday season.

The organization claims to offer “… a unique perspective of the alternative dispute process by crossing more spectrums than other companies coupled with offering a span of mediators and arbitrators to meet [families’] specific needs.” The company was founded to provide non-adversarial methods of resolution and assists with mediation for wills and probate dispute, civil litigation, and family legal matters, including divorce and custody.

An upcoming Coffee Chat, which is being called Naughty or Nice – Keeping the Peace with Family over the Holidays will provide tips for families dealing with difficult situations. The company is partnering with Your End of Life Doula to provide the chat that will also include coffee and treats free of charge. The hope is to introduce the family mediation program and provide families in the area with a peaceful solution to some of the most common challenges faced by families during the holiday season.

Those familiar with the services offered by the alternative dispute resolution firm call their approach innovative. Families are encouraged to attend regardless of their specific situation, but those facing difficult decisions during this holiday season could especially benefit from the information provided. The coffee chat is a great way to learn more about the benefits of mediation and other forms of alternative dispute resolution, which could make the holidays much easier on everyone.
