Universal Conflict Resolution


About Us

In 2011 Tom Schockemoehl and John Stewart founded Universal Conflict Resolution. UCR's mission is simple: to reduce the negative impact of unresolved conflict on our world by teaching individuals, families, groups and organizations positive, assertive, conflict resolution skills!

Together Tom and John developed a plan to reduce school conflict by providing staff, students, and administration with a peer mediation/conflict resolution program.

This effective and proven program helped reduce school violence and in addition taught conflict resolution skills to students and staff.
