Posted: Updated:

Bloomfield Hills, Michigan…. Oakland Mediation Center (OMC) is accepting applications for the next 40-Hour Community Mediation Training to teach volunteers to conduct mediation services for Oakland County residents, businesses, and organizations. The training is designed to provide participants the skills necessary to act as mediators in facilitating the resolution of general civil disputes from the initial consultation to writing the mediation agreement. OMC conducts mediation on-site at the Oakland County District Courts in Pontiac, Rochester, Southfield and Waterford and at their Bloomfield Hills office.

The training will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. July 9, 16, 23, 30, and August 6. The cost of the training is free, with a service requirement of 40 half days per year for two years. Certificates will be given when the service requirement has been met.

"OMC's mission is to help the community peacefully resolve conflict through mediation and education," said Bonnie Hanes, OMC Executive Director. "These trainings teach powerful skills and techniques to resolve conflict and prevent escalation. By resolving conflicts, we are creating a more peaceful community." 

The training will take place at the Oakland Mediation Center in Bloomfield Hills, and includes a continental breakfast, lunch, snacks and course materials. The training will be delivered by Kenzi Bisbing, OMC's education manager, who has conducted over 120 professional mediation and conflict resolution trainings. She is a highly skilled mediator and has facilitated hundreds of mediations across Arizona, Texas, Ohio and Michigan involving family, divorce, guardianship, truancy and community related issues.

Applicants should have an interest in working in their community, can commit to the service requirement and have the ability to commute to one or all of the district courts listed above.

The deadline to apply is July 1.  To view all requirements, information and to apply, visit www.mediation-omc.org or call (248) 338-4280.

    Report: health risks at some nail salons

    Monday, September 15 2014 10:28 PM EDT2014-09-16 02:28:27 GMT
    One of the most surprising findings in a report from the New York City public advocate is that city officials have virtually no authority over how nail salons are run. The city can't enforce standards like they do with restaurants, so it's clearly a case of beauty buyer beware. We get our nails done without thinking too much about it.
