Featured Programs:

July 17, 2019 “Obligations of the Mediator: A Case Study on Dealing with Confidentiality Concerns”

During a basic mediation training, we learn about confidentiality and it being one of the five principles of mediation. In practice, we are sometimes faced with challenges which demonstrate why it is indeed one of the hallmark standards. And for some of us, it might be years before we experience “that case”, the one which throws the most dangerous of curveballs that all of our previous mediation experience lacked a preparation for handling. What is actually required of mediators in terms of confidentiality? How do the exceptions to confidentiality inform our actions when a unique and alarming situation presents itself, one where a party’s plan to commit a crime or impose harm to self or others is disclosed? At what point, and how, do we go about working around our confidentiality commitments? 

MWI Executive Director Chuck is no stranger to these unique situations, and has a fascinating case study to share with us, along with his thoughts about how we can maintain our neutrality while answering to our obligations as a mediator. Join him and others for an afternoon of storytelling, strategizing and mediator toolkit development.

June 25, 2019 "Nonviolent Communication Part 2: The Experiential Laboratory for a Deeper Understanding of NVC”

This workshop builds on the popular “Nonviolent Communication Part 1” as an opportunity to deepen understandings and experiences with NVC concepts created by Marshall Rosenberg. In this two hour workshop, participants will explore the difference between observations and evaluations, how to translate should statements into feeling and needs statements and how to find the unexpressed dreams beneath complaints. Bring your workbook from the previous workshop offered by mediator, trainer and conflict coach Scott Loring and be ready to have some fun as you explore this powerful yet simple tool for effective communication.

This workshop is the second in a two part series. In order to attend, participants should have completed either the May 28 or one of Scott’s previous “Nonviolent Communication Part 1” workshops. 

September 10, 2019 – “Nonviolent Communication Part 1: Using NVC in Mediation and in Life”

Nonviolent Communication (NVC), developed by Marshall Rosenberg and practiced worldwide, is a communication style that examines the unmet needs behind what we say or do. The process transforms relationships with others and with one’s self. Sometimes referred to as “compassionate communication,” NVC fosters respect, attentiveness and empathy, and engenders a mutual desire to give from the heart. The form is simple, yet powerfully transformative, and uses careful observations to eliminate judgments, providing an effective language of neutrality for mediating a wide range of disputes. Further, using NVC in your mediation practice can help move the parties’ focus from positions to interests. Join us to learn more about NVC during a discussion led by mediator, trainer and conflict coach Scott Loring.

This workshop is the first in a two part series. In order to attend the June 25 Roundtable, “Nonviolent Communication Part 2,” participants should have completed either this or one of Scott’s previous “Nonviolent Communication Part 1” workshops.
