We are pleased to offer two new CR clinics that focus on important subjects: best practices for online dispute resolution and mediations for divorcing partners. Our core trainings, The Basics of Mediation and Beyond the Basics, are scheduled in October.
CONFLICT RESOLUTION CLINICS
Mediation Post Covid: The Rise of Online Dispute Resolution
August 30: Colin Rule | 5:30-7:30 pm PDT | Via Zoom
As the pandemic forced many of us to move our lives online, many mediators looked to the field of online dispute resolution (ODR) for best practices and lessons learned. Colin will discuss the rise of ODR, describe what we know and what we still need to know, and sketch out a vision for the future where technology plays an integral role in how we mediate disputes across society. Participants will leave with a range of new ODR tools and techniques. Colin will conclude with a Q&A session. Learn more & register here.
Divorce Mediation: Approaches to Ensure Success
September 13: Steven Rosenberg | 6-8pm PDT | Via Zoom
Couples going through a divorce face many challenges that are heightened by strong emotions. Mediation allows divorcing couples to take control of planning their own lives and to make informed, beneficial decisions about their future. In his clinic, Steven will discuss ways to initiate the divorce mediation process and help you gain a better understanding of the people in conflict. He will guide you through ways to facilitate a positive and productive mediation, plus much more. Learn more & register here.
