The Dispute Resolution Center offers confidential conciliation, mediation and arbitration services to Herkimer County residents as an alternative to Administrative Hearings, Family Court, Small Claims and Village Court intervention, by providing a neutral forum for the resolution of disputes, and by empowering the disputants to negotiate mutually acceptable resolutions to their conflicts. Through the TREATY Program, trainings are presented to teachers, administrators, support staff, parents and youth throughout Herkimer County and surrounding areas, on topics such as conflict management, school violence prevention, bullying, the Developmental Assets Framework, and peer mediation.
