Conflict Resolution Day

October 20th, 2022

What is conflict resolution?

Conflict resolution is a peaceful way to settle conflicts that arise from our individual needs and interests. It is an efficient way to help two parties come to an agreement about a disagreement. It is held with a neutral provider to help businesses, families, litigants in a court-related dispute come to a mutual agreement that attempts to address each partys’ needs.

 What is conflict resolution week?

Conflict resolution day was established in 2005 and is held on every third Thursday of October. Governor Roy Cooper and Chief Justice Paul Newby both proclaimed the entire week as “Conflict Resolution Week”. This week is used to promote different ways of resolving relationship, work, and family issues, and especially to resolve disputes outside of the overburdened court system. Not only does this week promote conflict resolution, but it also acknowledges all of the practitioners of conflict resolution such as mediators, arbitrators, neutral evaluators, ombuds, and others. It raises awareness for the importance of mediation and conflict resolution.
