We transform some disputes into lawsuits and attempt to resolve them; we treat other disputes from “different angles of vision” and respond to them accordingly.
In this course, we examine the principles and practices that shape the design and implementation of dispute resolution systems.
The course is structured as a dynamic blend of lecture, class discussion, extensive written materials, class review of videotaped sessions of actual mediating couples, and participation in role-play simulations. The twin goals of the course are to ground participants in the substantive and practical knowledge of family law, finances and personal dynamics required to act competently and confidently as divorce mediators, and to hone procedural skills so that participants can emerge as reflective – rather than reflexive – practitioners, with a sophisticated repertoire of mediation interventions at their disposal.
In addition to introducing participants to an integrated system that utilizes thirty-three distinct divorce mediation techniques, the course will provide creative tips to help couples negotiate parenting plans, child support, asset division, spousal support, taxes, insurance issues, and divorce procedures.
