  1. Great brochure that covers so many important points. One thing that’s missing, though, is information to let people know there are many well-trained mediators who help families work through these conflicts. Mediators help families work through planning before conflicts escalate. Mediators also help families at later stages when conflicts have become more difficult. The other conflict professionals who provide help are conflict coaches. A conflict coach helps an individual understand more about his or her conflict management style and supports people to define and reach their goals of moving through conflict. Appreciate the information, though, that helps families understand they are not alone when these difficult parts of the journey are present.
