Mediating high-conflict disputes requires more structure, but also more active involvement by the mediator and simple skills for the parties.
High conflict disputes are increasing in every legal setting. They often involve one or more individuals with high-conflict behavior, characterized by:
Preoccupation with blaming others
Prolonged, unresolved conflict
Drawing in many other people
Draining energy, time and resources
During the webcast, Bill Eddy will present an overview of his method known as 'New Ways for Mediation®' - meaning new skills for clients to use during high-conflict mediation in a combined delivery of workshop class and web broadcast. These include some paradigm shifts from ordinary mediation and are not designed to replace what already works but rather to use when other methods like emotional exchanges and insight just don’t work.
CPD 1.5 Units*
The webcast is then followed by a practical workshop held at Monash Postgraduate Centre for a limited number of participants. Using role play simulations to develop and practice the skills outlined in the webcast component, it will provide attendees with indepth personal feedback and discourse in a group environment.
CPD 6 Units*
*Please enquire with your CPD scheme to confirm how many units you can accrue.
Who Should Attend
This event is a must for all practising mediators. (Workshop component is limited to 40 participants.)
