What We Do

Athens Area Mediation Service...what we do.

We help people in conflict, many, many kinds of conflict in a wide variety of situations. Some are long term, deeply seated conflicts; some do not seem as serious. Some involve the court and legal system; some do not. Some with people who are ready and willing to work things out; some with people who are angry and discouraged. We have helped people have important conversations and resolve disputes including those between:

Spouses and partners


Business owners and consumers

Parents and teens

Landlords and tenants


Roommates and house mates

Boards, staffs, and groups trying to work together

Residents and officials

… and more

Mediation is fast, affordable, and effective. Contact us to find out more.

Conflict Resolution Training

We all help many groups with training in handling difficulties effectively. Our trainings are highly participatory, geared to the needs of those attending, and, surprisingly, relaxed and enjoyable. Many groups have reported a big shift in their ability to communicate well and work together more smoothly as a result.

We also offer a regular training series in the fundamentals of mediation for those who want to learn more. These trainings are offered four times each year, with three or four sessions totaling fourteen hours. We focus on developing listening and questioning skills that help people explore a crucial issue, “where do we go from here?” Participants report new understandings and growth from engaging with a diverse group around these important communication issues.
