Welcome to ACR

The Association for Conflict Resolution (ACR) is a professional organization enhancing the practice and public understanding of conflict resolution.

We are a national professional association for mediators, arbitrators, educators and other conflict resolution practitioners. ACR works in a wide range of settings throughout the United States and around the world.

At ACR, you will find colleagues with similar skills and concerns, whether you are a:

  • government employee working with the shared neutrals program

  • school educator teaching peer mediation

  • custody mediator in the court system

  • environmental mediator dealing with regulatory disputes

  • arbitrator dealing with corporate non-performance

  • public policy facilitator working with interagency conflict, or

  • divorce mediator working with families, or more!

Our multicultural and multidisciplinary organization offers a broad umbrella under which all forms of dispute resolution practice find a home.
