ProgramMediation Services, Peer Mediation Training/Consulting; Violence Prevention Education
Address The Carriage House
570 Broad Street
Providence, RI 02907
CategoriesCrisis Intervention
Violence Prevention Education
Description The concept of community mediation has grown rapidly over the course of the past three decades in response to concerns over violence in our society and frustration with our overburdened and expensive judicial system. More than 500 community mediation centers now operate throughout the United States, and today community mediation centers are recognized as vital components of justice in most states. The Community Mediation Center of Rhode Island (CMCRI), founded in 1996, is Rhode Islandís only such center. We are a grass-roots dispute resolution agency committed to the concepts of social justice, collaborative problem solving, building understanding through dialogue, and arriving at non-violent solutions to conflict.


CMCRI provides affordable mediation and dispute resolution services to community residents and organizations. In 2009 CMCRI staff and volunteer mediators intervened in over 646 disputes, both in the community and in the Small Claims Courts, assisting with family and parent-teen conflicts, court-involved juveniles, neighbor-to-neighbor, organizational and workplace disputes, agricultural conflicts, landlord-tenant, human rights cases, and small claims matters. By providing a forum in which parties can meet face to face to discuss their differences, we offer a voluntary, cooperative and constructive way of resolving conflicts and reaching agreements.


CMCRI also provides mediation and conflict resolution training to adults and children in the community and in the schools. In 2009 CMCRI offered 21 mediation and conflict resolution training sessions to over 303 children and adults, representing a large spectrum of races, ages, ethnicities and experiences.


The underlying goal of our work is to build and strengthen individuals, families and communities. Mediation enables individuals to build bridges within diverse populations by providing opportunities to solve disputes peacefully, preserve relationships and address root causes of conflict.

Target AudiencesAnyone experiencing a conflict, or interested in receiving conflict resolution training or workshops (Rhode Island residents).

CategoriesCounseling/Mental Health
Crisis Intervention
Description Addresses the difficulties encountered by Southeast Asians who have been victims of domestic violence, sexual assault or child abuse. The difficulties of these victims are losing their (or individual) trust and security towards their abusers. These victims become angry, upset, hostile and very depressed towards themselves and the perpetrators. They feel ashamed among friends, relatives and neighbors. Most of the time they feel frightened if they try to take any actions or ask help concerning their problems. Finally, it is very difficult to encounter help from others, and this is because of the culture or traditions that they are born into practicing.
