This "in-the-dispute-resolution-trenches" course explores how a neutral third-party, known as the "mediator" within the process known as "family mediation," can utilize nuanced techniques to help people in conflict reach mutually acceptable agreements without resorting to litigation in court. We focus on disputes related to divorce and child custody issues. Students will "step into the shoes" of the professional family mediator by examining essential mediation and negotiation strategies, skills and approaches to help manage, de-escalate, and resolve challenging, and at times, heated, family conflicts.
