 “Phoenix Strategies, Inc. truly stands out among other mediation training programs.  After beginning my Masters of Science for Negotiation and Dispute Resolution at Creighton University, I am even more aware of the top-notch training I received at PSI.  After going through a week long residency at Creighton, I realized I learned skills above and beyond what most of my colleagues learned in their 40 Hour Basic training programs. PSI delivers a great program which prepares each professional to put their new skills into action immediately. My time and money was well spent with PSI.”  Audra B. Mediator & Dispute Analyst
