$15.00 – $18.00
How can mediators encourage self-determination, foster meaningful communication, and facilitate exploration of common ground when one or more party is represented by a lawyer who views mediation as (un)necessary evil or a battle to be won? This workshop explores the ways in which attorneys can hinder progress at mediation and offers helpful approaches for transforming lawyers into allies of the mediation process, itself. This presentation will incorporate lecture, visual aids, and audience participation, all geared towards forging some new and useful tools for our mediator toolbelts.
