Along with colleagues at ECR, I developed a training in self-mediation that provides those trained with the skills to respond to an affront by turning toward cooperation rather than the natural response of responding in kind and the ensuing escalation of hostilities. I have supervised this training for over 1,000 fourth graders over the past ten years."

I learned of ECR, however, as a student of Manchester University, taking both Human Conflict and the Psychology of Mediation and Conciliation courses. Later, and after I returned to live in North Manchester, I worked as the Mediation Services Coordinator. My primary occupation at the time was undergoing some changes and I was unable to remain with ECR. Coming back to this organization has been enjoyable, familiar, and teeming with endless possibilities."
