Mediator Certification Focus Of Latest Episode Of Cafe Mediate Podcast Series

Each month at Cafe Mediate a group of ADR professionals gathers for lively, unscripted discussion of topics relevant to the business, practice, and future of the field.

In the latest episode of this monthly podcast series professional mediator and author Tammy Lenski, international business mediator Amanda Bucklow, commercial mediator Victoria Pynchon, and I begin a two-part discussion of a subject of particular interest to mediators: certification and credentialing for mediators in private practice. Joining us is pioneer and field leader Susanne Terry, an internationally respected dispute resolution practitioner, scholar, and ACR board member who is directly involved in shaping a national conversation on the issue of certification.
