Through lecture, video clips, and group exercise, we will learn about different styles of mediation and practice their application. Class size is limited to 30. This interactive workshop will apply mediation techniques to family conflict, differentiating mediation from other methods of dispute resolution. When illness or progressive disability occurs within a family, family members may experience conflict with each other due to differences in their values, fears or concerns. Social service professionals often find themselves in the middle of these tensions, with a responsibility to help the family make the best possible choices to solve problems, while preserving their relationships.
