Libraries to Offer Conflict Resolution Programs


Montgomery County Public Libraries (MCPL), in partnership with the Conflict Resolution Center of Montgomery County, will be offering the free Peace by Peace Series—four workshops that explore what conflict means and how and why individuals react in different ways to conflict. The programs offer tips and techniques on developing methods to communicate with a partner, friend, family member, acquaintance or co-worker. Workshops are geared toward specific situations and age groups.

“During these stressful times, communication can be challenging,” said MCPL Director Anita Vassallo. “MCPL is so delighted to be able to offer these timely workshops offering residents helpful techniques to effectively engage in conversations with individuals with opposing views while maintaining positive relationships.”

The Peace by Peace Series free workshops schedule:

All workshops are offered virtually. Registration is required for each. For more information, email Clotilde Puértolas at

This is a Montgomery County, Maryland announcement.

Good morning Roy. Excellent program for these troubled times. The need to disagree without being disagreeable is about to be tested to its limits. Enjoy your day.

Many family members and friends find themselves in polarizing situations these days due to the events of the last year. And, it is causing huge rifts, and breaks in relationships. What a shame. I hope those in need will find these types of workshops.

Roy, this is an interesting set of workshops, but with so much conflict around us, probably a good thing!
