Making Mediators: An Intensive Workshop for Attorneys and Other Professionals Who Mediate

February 25-26, 2010
March 4-5, 2010

This intensive workshop is designed for experienced professionals, familiar with mediation as advocates, but with less expertise in the neutral's role.

Your reputation in the professional community might lead to mediation referrals, but strong skills and early successes are essential to establish competence and to build a mediation practice. The neutral's role is tricky: harder than it looks. The mediator must overcome barriers to settlement, break impasse, and handle "dysfunctional" parties. This workshop will prepare participants for tough terrain.

Participants will learn mediator skills and strategies for achieving the credibility and power to maximize the likelihood of settlement. Participants will gain real experience and expertise in two complex mediations by focusing on a variety of specific, challenging mediation scenarios.
