Event description

Description

Full day Workshop

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:

  • All-or-nothing thinking

  • Unmanaged emotions

  • Extreme behavior

  • Preoccupation with blaming others

  • Prolonged, unresolved conflict

  • Drawing in many other people

  • Draining energy, time and resources

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 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.

Attendees will then participate in role play simulations throughout the afternoon to develop and practice the skills outlined. Bill will provide in depth personal feedback and discourse in a group environment.

CPD 6 Units*
