Have you had mediations which left you wondering what else you could have done? Are you aware of what triggers you personally and prevents you from being fully present during a mediation? This is an opportunity to talk in a confidential setting about challenging moments during a mediation which may have kept you up at night. Come share your insights and get answers to the question of “What might I have done differently?”

During this informal conversation about our challenging mediations, you will be able to give and receive input from other experienced mediators about techniques which have worked and others which have not led to the results we hoped to achieve. Our goal is to increase learning and hone our skills for those difficult moments that arise in nearly every mediation.n
