Center for Public Policy Dispute Resolution

Building Collaboration

Customized Trainings

In addition to general training activities open to the public, the Center also provides customized trainings for agencies and special initiatives.

Center Fellows receive advanced training in complex, public policy dispute resolution and learn about the Center and its activities. Participants in special programs such as the Center’s Employee Grievance/Dispute Resolution Working Group were instructed in the design, implementation, and the use of effective alternative dispute resolution systems. Child Support Enforcement Officers at the Texas Office of Attorney General requested a two-day training program to reinforce basic mediation skills and focus on specific new conflict management skills needed in the Child Support Review process. The Center has also provided specialized training for Oil Spill Response Team members at the request of the General Land Office.
