The many diverse communities in the Twin Cities are not immune from family, neighborhood, and legal disputes.  Cultural sensitivities, norms, and expectations often become of importance in and during the dispute resolution process.  This seminar is intended to consider the often important roles that process, belief systems, parents, and community elders may play in attempting to bring harmony to chaos and conflict.  Areas of discussion include matters involving marriage, property, business, and restorative justice.
