Webinar – Religion and Politics at the Dinner Table: How to Help Parties Agree to Disagree
Date: May 25
Time: 12:00 – 1:00 pm
Location: Online, Free

Nothing arouses passionate discourse quite like talking about politics and/or religion. Sometimes known as “values based” or “identity based” disputes, these seemingly unresolvable and polarizing topics can be tough to encounter, especially when we ourselves hold an opinion that threatens our impartiality. By reviewing core mediation skills such as interest identification and reframing, participants in this webinar will learn how to engage with these subject areas in a way that fosters mutual understanding between parties with differing points of view.

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.

Statute 494 might seem dense, but we are here to help you become familiar with the law’s requirements and learn more about the “nuts and bolts” that keep community mediation running smoothly in Minnesota.
