COVID Consequences: Slouching Toward Civil War
by Peter Adler
A COVID Screed on What it Means and What We Can Do.

Concerns that COVID has Escalated into a Media Conflict
by Mary Williams
COVID, as it stands, is a serious disease but only the over-promotion of it in the media has elevated this strain from any mutation of the flu. This is preventing the nation from having a civil discourse about it.

A Conversation with People who Don't Want to be Vaccinated
by Milan Slama
Our country, and the world in general, is divided. This article gives an example of how to have a conversation with someone who has a different approach to the pandemic than you.

February 4 and 18 - ONLINE - The Art & Science of Online Mediation 
Sponsored by Mediate.com and the Mediation Council of Illinois
with Colin Rule and Clare Fowler

Covid Exasperates Issues Between Co-parents About Agency
by Aaron Leakey
Covid-19 certainly does exasperate the challenge of co-parenting post-separation.

COVID Mediations: Dialogue Tools Set Up Pandemic Mediations for Success
by Janet Chance
COVID has transformed typical workplace and family mediations to look more like emotional contentious community disputes and therefore, the tools used in a community dispute such as Reflective Structured Dialogue can help workplace and family mediations be more productive and positive.

More COVID PIEs and the Alice-in-Wonderland Supreme Court Decision Endangering Workers
by John Lande
This is a sequel to the post last week, My Covid Perceived Injurious Experiences (PIE). This is one author articulating their concerns and their approach to resolving a personal conflict with their COVID experience. While Mediate.com does not take a stance on the pandemic, we encourage authors to write in with their approach to resolving interpersonal pandemic conflicts.
