10:10 am  -- 11:40 am -- Being More Present: Mindfulness Techniques to help you and your clients

Jon Kabat-Zinn defines mindfulness as “paying attention in a particular way: on purpose, in the present moment, non-judgmentally.” The practice of paying attention has been shown to help people breathe and become more aware of where they are in the moment, physically and psychologically. It can cause an “increase in empathy, affective regulation, and behavioral flexibility,” which are all essential to the work of mediation. Mindfulness can cause an increase in empathy, affective regulation, and behavioral flexibility, which are all essential to the work of mediators (Reina et al, 2015). This interactive workshop will cover the research and benefits of mindfulness, as well as teach mediators how mindfulness techniques can be used to prepare for a mediation, with your participants/clients during a mediation, and to close or end a session. Participants will be introduced to multiple practices and have the opportunity to practice those individually and as a group.

Trainer: Shanza Isom, MSW, Assistant Professor, Director of Field Instruction, James Madison University

(1.5 hours CME credit)


11:40 am -- 12:10 pm -- Lunch


12:10 pm -- 1:40 pm -- Judgement Day

This session will be highlighted by feedback from the Court on Mediation Agreements and how Mediation service is supported by the Court.  A Judge or Court Clerk will be available to provide their perspective and answer mediator questions.

Additionally, Mediation Services will conduct a review of Mediation agreements and highlight standards in formatting, common errors and themes and alternative wordings for various concerns. Additionally, a review of Child Support will be completed and common errors in calculations and new format and wordings for submission to Court.  Mediation Services will discuss the Intake and Screening process and Mediation Services Role in Follow-up with the clients and changes to the agreements after mediation.

Trainer: Aaron Hagmaier, Director of Mediation Services, FairField Center with a court representative

(1.5 hours CME credit)


1:50 pm -- 3:30 pm -- Show and Tell: Teachable Moments in Mediation

 

The mediation process involves active listening, paraphrasing, and helping parties move through a process to reach better understanding and/or an agreement. Along the way, there may be opportunities to share with mediation clients some information that is helpful in ways to communicate, make decisions, or navigate a changed relationship.

Through lecture, small and large group discussion and information sharing, participants will learn new ideas about how and when to incorporate teachable material into a mediation session.

 

(1.5 hours CME credit)

 


3:30pm -- 5:30 pm -- Ethics:

Mediation is inherently a fluid and flexible process; however, Standards of Ethics and Professional Responsibility adopted by the Judicial Council of Virginia provide certified mediators with a guide for acceptable conduct.

Trainer: Timothy Ruebke, Executive Director, FairField Center
