The High Conflict Institute

High Conflict Institute was founded to provide education and resources to professionals handling High Conflict disputes, and to anyone involved in relationships of any kind with people who have High Conflict Personalities (HCPs).

Heidi was the mediator assigned to us by the judge because we were considered high conflict and needed help. We now have a plan for our son that makes way more sense. I still don’t talk to his mom. We only email once a week but I think we are both better parents for it. Never knew what mediation was but I’m glad we went. Judge was happy we solved our problem without a trial. No one wins in that case.
