Breaking Barriers, Opening Doors.
Couples & Individuals
In addition to working with large groups, the GCC is adept at handling individual situations as well. Around 50% of marriages in the U.S. end in divorce; There are nearly 2,400 divorces per day, 16,800 divorces per week, and 876,000 divorces a year. With statistics like these, it’s no surprise that the average marriage lasts about 8 years, with most couples being in their 30s at the time of divorce.
Most of the situations in marital conflict can be resolved through principle strategies offered by the GCC. We teach couples how to approach difficult topics thoughtfully and with their partner’s best interests at heart. We also recognize that marriages are composed of individuals. Sometimes the biggest challenge we face on a day-to-day basis is ourselves. For individual work, we have a proven history and track record of talking through issues to resolution for any and all difficult life problems.
Make Someone Smile
As with any large group, it is inevitable that conflict will arise and business organizations are no different. Conflict resolution involves learning communicative strategies which emphasize calm conversations with peers and colleagues.
Second Chances Matter
Correctional institutions are home to not only criminals, but people with growing minds, willing to work towards resolution and peace after incarceration. The GCC hosts multiple sessions with the inmates in the Athens-Clarke County Detention Center aimed at uncovering and understanding our deeper connections with conflict.
Keeping Everybody Happy
Even in the most sacred of places, it is not unusual to have conflicting beliefs or ideals amongst a congregation. We specialize in navigating tensions that may arise in religious institutions through workshops and classes. More specifically, we discuss acceptance around diversity of thought in religious places. When we can agree to disagree, we serve our highest ethical values.
Extend A Hand
Our youth are the future of our country and the Georgian Community. Here at The Georgia Conflict Center, we believe that at any level of one's life, conflict is inevitable to arise. When that conflict does arise, it is imperative that the issue is resolved efficiently. The GCC has extensive experience working with schools all over the state.
