Event description

Description

Please join us for an informative, interactive training with insights from three experienced mediators and mediation trainers.

Topics include:

  • Updates on law and ethics – the latest on recent court decisions, “automatic” mediation, and more
  • Beyond confidentiality – best practices for responding to informal inquiries, subpoenas and court orders; how parties use our "confidential" communications; how far do court orders for mediation go and what mediators can do about them
  • Ensuring self-determination – anticipating power imbalances, intimidation, fear and other factors to ensure party self-determination; compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act
  • Getting past impasse - an inter-active practice session to help mediators recognize negotiation strategies and sharpen their coaching of party negotiation skills

This seminar is approved by SCAO for 8 hours of advanced mediation training for BOTH general civil and domestic relations mediators required by MCR 2.411(F)(4) and MCR 2.316(G)(3) to remain on court rosters.
