This CLE will introduce attorneys and other legal professionals to the mediation and collaborative practice methods of problem-solving and conflict resolution for family and other civil matters.
Our panel of speakers - comprised of experienced mediators and collaborative attorneys Teresa Calabrese, Andrea Hirshman, and Joy Rosenthal - will focus on the principles and skills common to both methods. They will begin with an overview of mediation, which also forms the foundation for collaborative practice. They will discuss the roles of professionals in each method of practice, and the manner in which professionals work together to help the parties create solutions that benefit everyone involved.
In addition, the panel will outline how each process works and will illustrate effective tools and techniques through a “fishbowl” demonstration to further the participants understanding of each practice.
This CLE will challenge practitioners to think outside the litigation box and consider what advocacy and neutrality mean in the mediation and collaborative arenas. This overview will encourage attorneys to explore mediation and collaborative practice further and consider offering clients alternate ways of resolving conflict. The panel will provide participants with information about training opportunities so they can further their understanding of each practice and increase their toolbox options.
