Webinar – Generating Creative Options
Date: September 20th
Time: 12:00 – 1:00 pm
Location: Online, Free

The facilitative style of mediation provides many benefits, and can be challenging to maintain when faced with parties who are having difficulty thinking of their own possible solutions. Learning how to tap into the parties’ creative energy is as much about opening and holding the space for creative problem solving as it is about skillfully guiding the parties through variations on the theme of brainstorming.  Join this session to learn new tools to spice up the option generating phase of a mediation session and to review facilitative tips for keeping your suggestions far away from the mediation table.

Webinar: Mediating With Mixed levels of Authority in the Room

Date: October 11th
Time: 12:00 – 1:00 pm
Location: Online, Free
Employee and boss; landlord and tenant; parent and child. There are myriad ways mixed levels of authority manifest at the mediation table.  To effectively allow each participant an authentic voice in the mediation session requires us as mediators to move beyond the desire to “balance” the power in the room and into our own capacity to hold the truth of the discomfort that mixed levels of authority present.  This session will overview best practices for creating balanced participation in mediation sessions where the levels of authority are a challenging issue.

Webinar – Conflicts of Interest: Holiday Dinners With Relatives –

Date: November 8th
Time: 12:00 – 1:00 pm
Location: Online, Free

Happy Holidays – chances are over the next couple months many of us might hear someone shout, “Hey! You’re a mediator!  You help us figure this out!” while eating dinner with family members.  When, if ever, should you mediate disputes between family members – formally or informally?   And what level of engagement constitutes mediating?  In this session, we’ll take a look at both the applicable ethics rules that might impact your decision to enter or exit the conversation as well as the practical concerns that come with conflicts of interest when our professional and personal lives collide.

Webinar – Rule 114: What Changed?? (Ethics)
Date: December 20th
Time: 12:00 – 1:00 pm
Location: Online, Free

Rule 114 of the Minnesota General Rules of Practice governs a variety of topics, including the differing types of alternative dispute resolution processes available to disputing parties, fee arrangements and advertising for providing these services, and the code of ethics applicable to all neutrals in the state of Minnesota. Knowledge of Rule 114’s contents, and recent changes to the rule, are integral to providing ethical, high quality ADR services – whether as a private practitioner, community mediation volunteer, or both. Join us to learn what the newly revised rule looks like and what the changes mean for our practices.
