Fall 2017 Support & Development

October 2, 2017 at 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm EDT


This Advanced Training Series will bring together a relatively small group of people who have completed the Center’s basic training and who are working to integrate this perspective into their ongoing professional practices in Mediation and/or Collaborative Law.  The small group size will allow for highly interactive learning.

The focus will be on how we can work effectively with the subjective inner dynamic that underlies, and often fuels, conflict at an objective level.  This subjective dimension includes emotions and attitudes as well as motivations and aspirations that the parties have about – themselves and each other, their particular conflict, and conflict itself and its resolution.  This inner dimension is also at work in the mediator, and between the mediator and the parties.

Participants will learn to recognize how the subjective dimension beneath a conflict can keep the parties trapped (a “conflict trap”) and how understanding and working with that dimension can help free the parties, and the mediator, from the confines of these traps. Learning will take place through case presentation, discussion, lecture and role play.  Participants should be willing to present one of their cases so that the group can examine not only what is of significance for that participant and for that case, but also what issues are raised for the others in the group as well.  Understanding how to work with the underlying dimension of conflict will have resonance and value for the entire group.

The classes will be led by Katherine Miller and Jack Himmelstein and will be held from 6:30 — 9 PM on the following dates:

  • Thurs Nov 9, 2017
