MA Mediation Group Teaches Vets to Help Vets
(2007-11-12)
(wfcr) - Western Massachusetts veterans can now receive help in dealing with family conflicts, divorces, and other issues from fellow veterans. The "Veterans Mediation Project," launched by Quabbin Mediation, is staffed by volunteer mediators. So far, it's trained 12 veterans, including Sheila Davis, a psychotherapist, who's also an Army Gulf-War veteran. Davis says there are certain things a fellow veteran will understand that a civilian with no military experience could not.

Davies says the hope is that the project will help more veterans feel comfortable getting help with conflicts that might otherwise escalate out of control. Volunteer mediators with the program are based in locations throughout western Massachusetts.
