Dispute Resolution Center of Kitsap County
The Dispute Resolution Center of Kitsap County (DRC) strengthens relationships, families, and communities through mediation, facilitation, training, Restorative Practice services and Behavioral Health Ombuds services. The goal of the DRC is to build community through the power of effective dialogue. Our mediators help neighbors, businesses, families and agencies find resolutions to their conflicts. The DRC also offers a variety of training programs. The 40-hr. mediation training helps potential mediators meet requirements for certification. Our school based trainings help youth learn skills to deal with conflict in a positive way. All of our trainings offer participants the opportunity to look at conflict in a different way. Our Ombuds help bridge the gap between clients and their behavioral health providers, helping to ensure dignified quality services. And, our Restorative Practices team is available to work with schools, workplaces, families and HOAs to allow parties to work together to improve challenging situations.
