Description

With the proliferation of court-connected mediation programs, many mediators are learning how to adapt their techniques to suit a time-limited mediation. In such circumstances, there can be a temptation to resort to more coercive techniques, which can undermine the process.

This presentation will provide strategies for staying connected to the parties in mediation, even when time runs short. Through this presentation, you'll learn: (1) why coercive techniques often undermine the efficacy of a mediation process; (2) what types of non-coercive techniques mediators typically employ; and (3) strategies for adapting these techniques to time-limited circumstances.
