From Chip Rose (10/17/13)
Having been a subscriber/member since its inception, I am very grateful for the role that Mediate.com has played in advancing the field, creating a phenomenal library of dispute resolution literature, and offering practitioners with hands-on access to their individual websites. What is even more impressive are the creation of the internet technologies that are being used by institutions, as well as individuals, to deal with dynamic human interactions that go well beyond the limited plane of mediation. The staff of Mediate.com have created both a domain for practitioners and an unending fountain of technological ingenuity that makes it unique in its field. Congratulations to Jim and the staff for an amazing job.

Rose, Chip: From Litigator to Mediator - Video (08/15/09)

Rose, Chip: Professional Intimacy and Trust - Video (05/15/09)
Chip Rose compares mediation with collaborative law and notes that in mediation he is able to meet with parties in private caucuses which allows him the ability to build trust and intimacy and this does not happen in collaborative law where the parties are in the same room throughout the process.

Rose, Chip: Why Pay Two Collaborative Lawyers - Video (05/15/09)
Parties who are not clear about the purpose, value and definition of mediation may think they need a collaborative lawyer to attend the mediation session with them. Chip works with the parties to educate them about their rights.

Rose, Chip: Frustrations with Legal System - Video (05/15/09)

Rose, Chip: Objective of Mediation - Video (05/15/09)

The Client-Centered Process: Common Ground for Mediators And Collaborative Professionals (03/24/08)
The Client-Centered Process: Common Ground for Mediators In his “Letters to a Young Poet,” the Czech poet, Rainer Maria Rilke counsels a young man who sent some of his work to the aging artist seeking his opinion. In one of the most memorable portions of the correspondence, Rilke encouraged his young artist friend to find comfort by “living in the question”—trusting that to do so was a far more productive endeavor than obsessing about the answers. I cannot think of a more appropriate point of professional departure for those of us who work with interpersonal, relational conflict than to practice the art of “living in the question.”

The Collaborative (R)evolution (12/12/04)
In the field of conflict resolution, the contemporaneous emergence of the modern mediation movement began a course change that is nothing short of revolutionary. If we tracked the arc of that change like a Saturn rocket, mediation was the first stage lift off and Collaborative Law is the second stage booster.

The Psychology Of Divorce (03/04/04)
In helping couples to successfully negotiate the ending of their marital relationship, it is vital for the divorce professional to understand the underlying dynamics of the family as a system and of the divorce process; the professional must grasp how the divorce crisis influences and is influenced by both family structure and family process.

The Creative Solution: Sibling Non-Rivalry (07/28/03)
Either the Collaborative Law (CL) movement has already sprouted in your community or it will in the near future. The growth of this latest entry into the dispute resolution field demonstrates meaningful similarities to and differences from the emergence of the modern mediation movement beginning in the early 1970’s. In every sense, these two movements are siblings, evolving from a common gene pool.

Collaborative Concepts (03/11/02)
As the Collaborative Family Law model moves into its second decade of expansion, we can observe how far it has come and how far it has yet to go. The two most frequently expressed frustrations I hear while training around the country and across Canada are, the difficulty in getting cases, on the one hand, and the difficulty in keeping the case collaborative, on the other. As was true for mediation in the decades of the 80's, the desire of the professionals is out pacing the consumer demand.

Introduction To Collaborative Negotiating (01/09/01)
The core of the collaborative process is to facilitate the making of agreements. To be effective in this role, it is necessary to make a mental shift in the mindset that one brings to viewing both the nature of the conflict and the elements inherent in the personalities, characteristics and resources of the parties.

Sample Stipulation For Collaborative Law (01/08/01)
Petitioner SUSAN SMART and Respondent SAMUEL SMART, and their respective attorneys, enter into the following stipulations with respect to the above-captioned Family Law action now pending before the Court:

Why Collaborative Law? (03/30/00)
The most profound development in the legal profession is the rapidly growing field collaborative law. Collaborative law refers to an approach to dispute resolution in which the parties are represented by counsel of their own choosing, however the attorneys are chosen because they belong to an identified group or association and have made a commitment to represent their clients in reaching a settlement without resorting to any form of litigation or any adjudicatory procedure.
