FEATURED MEDIATORS
M E D I A T O R S
"I go to a Jr. high school. I was trained to be a mediator last school year. We started out with about 18 people. By the 2nd and last day of training it was down to 12 people. This year when we got back to school we were down to 8 people. Now we have some new members and we are back up to 16 people. Being a peer mediator is one of the hardest things that I think I have ever done in my life so far, but I'm only 13. Every one that I come across is "like what is a mediator?" It is a really hard thing to explain. In our group last year we saved 2 people from killing themselves. We were very proud of ourselves. This year I have acted like a counselor and have helped a teenage boy from going to jail. That is the type of stuff that is going on in our school today. It is very frightening some days for me to get up and go to school because I never know what is going to happen. That is just some of the things that is going on. We have helped a lot of people and we hope to continue. I think this is a good idea to have a website like this."

Hadassah Fidler
Nesting a New Co-Parenting Arrangement (5/22/17)
Hadassah Fidler

Divorce is a hard process and perhaps nobody knows this better than the children of divorced parents, who can find themselves caught up in a situation over which they have little control facing an uncertain future.



Dr. Lynne C. Halem
Collaborative Parenting Can Mend the Divide (3/06/17)
Dr. Lynne C. Halem

Professionals writing about divorce too often reinforce parental fears by recounting, even exacerbating the negative consequences of divorce



Camaron Thomas
What I Learned from Studying Neuroscience about the Future of Mediation (1/20/17)
Camaron Thomas

Individual differences matter. To be of value, mediation has to draw on these differences to elicit how the parties make sense.



Stuart Watson
A Tale of Two Boxes: Re-Visioning the Nature of Conflict (1/20/17)
Stuart Watson

The nature of conflict has shifted from building understanding, connection and resolution between people to being in service, and pledging commitment to the grander evolutionary process, as nature “has its way” with humans experiencing conflict.

Constantin-Adi Gavrila
What’s In It For Us? (8/19/16)
Constantin-Adi Gavrila

The vast majority of people still have confusions, if not difficulties, in having a clear representation of WHO a mediator is, WHAT is it that a mediator aims to achieve, for WHOM, WHAT he or she does, and maybe more importantly, IF, WHEN and WHY would someone benefit from using mediation and mediators.

4 Benefits Of Being A Child Of Divorce (4/15/16)
Vicki Shemin

As a child of divorce, a divorced mother of two, and a long-practicing divorce lawyer/therapist, divorce is not exactly something I would advocate for improving a child’s mental health.

Laurie Israel
10 Things I Hate About Prenuptial Agreements (2/21/16)
Laurie Israel

Don’t get me wrong – I’m all for prenuptial agreements in second marriages, especially where there are children of the first marriage. But many of the prenuptial agreements I see are for first marriages and are unfair, badly conceived, and very destructive.



Richard Birke
How Likely Am I to Win? Risk, Uncertainty & the Turkey Illusion (9/18/15)
Richard Birke

When parties are faced with an attractive settlement offer, they frequently wish to compare the offer to what they might get at trial, which is the product of the odds of winning times the value of the verdict or award. Naturally, they ask their lawyer “how likely am I to win?”



Michael A. Zeytoonian
Transforming Disputes into Transactions via Collaborative Law (8/28/15)
Michael A. Zeytoonian

When I work with people to help them resolve their disputes, I often find that they are very preoccupied with finding fault and placing blame for what has happened to trigger the dispute. We spend a lot of our energies, time and emotion – clients and lawyers alike – looking backward at what happened and seeing who we can hold liable.

The Effects of Climate Change Are All Local: Here's What You Can Do to Help Manage the Risks (8/14/15)
Larry Susskind

We've spent far too much time thinking about the global causes of climate change, and not nearly enough worrying about the local impacts that climate change is already having on coastal communities. This article discusses how we involved communities in a collaborative discussion about climate change.



Richard Barbieri
The Future of Mediation: Changing the Default of Fault (7/21/15)
Richard Barbieri

Will the future of mediation be, as Woody Allen remarked, “much like the present, only longer”? Given what we know about human nature, systems, and the resistance of each to change, that’s perhaps the safest prediction. But it’s also a less than hopeful prognosis, because mediation has much to offer the future, far more than it has achieved at present.

Overcoming Reluctance to Engage in Mediation (6/11/15)
Laura Athens

Many attorneys know and appreciate the benefits of mediation.  Those who are familiar with the benefits of mediation readily propose and eagerly participate in it.  However, should you encounter any resistance, how can it be addressed?



Dick Price
Considering Reconciling? (4/10/15)
Dick Price

This is kind of a chicken and egg situation. Which came first, the possibility of reconciliation or choosing to use the Collaborative process?



Donal O’Reardon
The Transpersonal is the Future of Mediation (2/04/15)
Donal O’Reardon

The future of mediation and conflict resolution is the transpersonal. “Transpersonal” means a view of the person as more than their conscious mind.



Joe Markowitz
Selma (1/09/15)
Joe Markowitz

Was there ever an opportunity for peaceful resolution of this civil rights conflict? We see President Johnson acting at times a little bit like a mediator between King and Governor Wallace, but no real attempt was made at creating a dialogue that could resolve the dispute.
