Effective Techniques at Mediation(5/29)
May 29, 2013

Program Description:  

Effective Techniques at Mediation

There is no such thing as a "normal" mediation.  Each mediation is unique; with unique parties, emotions, goals and solutions.  Domestic/divorce mediation, with the obvious emotional issues at stake such as child visitation and division of marital property rights is  much different than construction mediation which involves money, reputation and future livelihood.  A commercial mediation may simply involved the payment of a past due invoice.

This doesn't mean that one type  mediation is any harder than the other.  But to be a successful mediator, you must learn to find the  emotional involvement of the parties in each case.  A good mediator must work hard to understand the fundamental "needs" of the parties.  In one case, a party may have a need to be “right”; another may have specific financial needs while another may have revenge as a motive.  The road to a solution in each case is completely different, but there is a solution to be found in each case.

This session will explore some techniques which can be used by a successful mediator to find those solutions.  

Speakers include: Edmund Pete Karem, W. R. (Pat) Patterson, Retired Judges & Associates Mediation Service and Stephen E. Smith, Goldberg Simpson
