The MSBA's New Lawyers Section Presents
"Keeping It Real: Transformative Mediation Offers a New Way to Help to Clients in Conflict"
Did you know that there are different methods of mediation, and that you have a choice in the type you use? Join us for a general discussion of the most common methods of mediation, and a detailed exploration of the theory of conflict that sets the transformative model apart. Participants will also leave the session with tips for effectively representing clients in conflict, including:
• getting the most out of mediation
• helping clients break out of the destructive cycle of conflict
• helping clients make the best possible decisions during mediation – those that they will be happy with long term
• what is really going on when clients are fighting over "the little things"
