    Mediation Services

    The Counseling Program provides mediation services to Tempe residents to assist in the resolution of conflicts between neighbors and assist in the settling of disputes among individuals or community groups who have reached an impasse in communication. Proven conflict resolution techniques are applied within a neutral environment where participants can have their concerns and feelings listened to and respected.

    There are no fees for mediation services. Meetings take place at the Social Services office in the Tempe Public Library. Meetings are usually one hour in length and solutions are usually achieved within one or two meetings. Phone 480-350-5400.
