Conflict mediation is a resolution process involving a neutral mediator helping two parties come to a compromise. Conflict mediation skills are important for every member of the community to learn as we shift into a world without police. Five conflict mediation skills are: 1) Avoiding. Staying away from potential triggers and violence. 2) Competing. This is an ineffective strategy in which two parties go against each other to try to "win." 3) Accommodating. This strategy involves compromise between two parties. 4) Collaborating. This is when two parties work together to come up with a solution. 5) Compromising. This is the ultimate goal of conflict resolution, when two parties can agree on a solution and move forward.
