Cultivating strong, healthy relationships with the world around you is the key to growth.
Good interpersonal communication is vital to strong neighbourhood, community and on-the-job relationships and to a fair, progressive society.
This has been our priority at MAVN since our organization was founded in 1990. We are the Laurentians’ leading authority on interpersonal skills development. Our core philosophy focuses on:
Working hand-in-hand with various parties to foster dialogue
Bringing people together
Providing a supportive presence in conflict situations
At MAVN, our team works every day to build bridges in situations where the parties involved need a helping hand to improve their relationship, overcome conflict or make amends following a confrontation.
A DIFFERENT APPROACH TO JUSTICE
We believe in restorative justice, which represents an alternative solution to conventional judicial proceedings. This can also mean managing extrajudicial measures (without the involvement of a court judge) or specific court sentences (with the involvement of a judge) in a fair, reasonable manner.
We are a member of the Organismes de Justice Alternative du Québec (ASSOJAQ).
REMEMBER: CONFLICTS ARE A NATURAL PART OF LIFE!
At MAVN, we approach every conflict from a positive angle. Conflicts in one form or another can arise in any personal or professional relationship. They are part and parcel of an any active community. Our team has an in-depth understanding of the nature and origins of conflict and is uniquely equipped to deal with them.
In some cases, conflicts may even pave the way to opportunities that may not have otherwise materialized. Our role is to bring the parties together, have them engage in an open dialogue, come up with mutually acceptable solutions and put actions into place that respect their rights.
We feel that the parties involved in a conflict should have a direct role to play in its resolution. Whether it concerns an offence, a legal action or a dispute, we encourage active engagement in the process in order to respect the rights and the dignity of every individual.
