Conflict Transformation

Conflict Transformation
Conflict can be extremely challenging. When prolonged, it becomes a heavy burden that often carries with it depleting emotions such as anger, resentment, fear and/or loss. It can be hard to imagine how such an experience can yield a positive result. Yet, there is a way to transform the toxic bitterness of conflict, and use the conflict as an opportunity for healing. It is called Conflict Transformation, or “CT.”

CT was developed by Eileen Barker, an expert on conflict and conflict resolution – a professional mediator for over twenty years  – who observed that even when clients reached a settlement of their dispute, they were often left with unresolved “loose ends” that continued to exert a profound – and usually very negative – influence  in their lives and relationships long afterward. Drawing on her extensive experience with law, conflict resolution, and psychology, she created CT to address this.

CT is the greatest gift you can give yourself.
CT is a structured process that is very powerful, very healing, and very effective for anyone involved in a difficult conflict.   CT enables clients to use the challenges and emotions they are facing as a doorway for growth. CT offers a fundamental change in how people see themselves and each other in the conflict, and enables each person to re-establish inner peace and well-being. If you have been enmeshed in a difficult conflict, CT truly is the greatest gift you can give yourself.

How do I start CT?
CT is available exclusively to clients of Barker Mediation and through professionals who have received specific training in the CT process.  The cost of CT is $2,250 for up to five private sessions, which can be done in person or via Skype or phone.  Additional sessions can be scheduled as needed, at $450 per session.  Sliding scale considered on a case by case basis.
