Stereotyping, Prejudice and Bias in Mediation: Lessons for Mediation Practitioners
with Kenneth Cloke (Approved for 1.5 MCLE Hours in California) 
Every conflict involves diversity, whether in race, gender, nationality, culture, sexual orientation, language, capacity, context, and personality, or simply in positions, interests, ideas, beliefs, backgrounds, values, and environments. Participants in this workshop will learn approaches, exercises and techniques that will assist people in identifying the sources of prejudice, bias and stereotyping, and reduce their impact on cross-cultural communications and relationships.

Building Trust and Utilizing Personal Power in Mediation
with Lee Jay Berman  (Approved for 1.5 MCLE Hours in California)
Mediation is, in many senses, a kind of micro-consulting that we do with our clients. Within the first 10 minutes, we have secured a first impression with them, and through the next 2-3 hours, we must focus on building trust, above all else, because it is at the end of that day, when the going gets tough, that mediators need all of the impact we can muster. We will learn from the world of client service and consulting how to build trust and utilize personal power and executive presence to gain maximum mediator power and impact.

Choreographing Communication in Mediation
with James C. Melamed   (Approved for 1 MCLE Hour in California) 
Jim describes how mediation is moving away from being “a discrete physical event” and toward a more complex “choreography of communication.” Jim will review the various available synchronous and asynchronous communication modalities and discuss how we are wise to align the communication modalities we use with the practical and psychological needs of the situation.  The issue is not “face-to-face or online,” but, rather, how we can best integrate both face-to-face and online communications.
