"Getting Beyond Impasse"
Wed. Nov. 30, 2016
An Exploration of ideas and approaches for dealing with impasse in mediation.
Christine W. Ariel, Esquire
Parties come to mediation because they find themselves stuck in a conflict with another or others. Mediators seek to assist parties to create solutions.
What can we do as mediators to help the parties move around or through impasse? A panel of experienced mediators will present their ideas and approaches for dealing with impasse, and will invite workshop participants to share what has and has not worked in helping parties to find a pathway beyond impasse.
