    “Managing Emotions in Mediation”

    RIMA Workshop

    An Exploration of the Challenges and responsibilities faced by Mediators.  

    Presenter:
    Moshe Cohen
     
     Moshe is the president and founder of The Negotiating Table, a training, mediation, and consulting firm in Boston, Massachusetts. Since 1995, Moshe has been teaching, mediating, coaching, writing, and speaking on the topics of negotiation, leadership, change management, influence, conflict resolution, mediation, facilitation, and communication. He teaches Negotiation and Leadership in the MBA program at Boston University, where he has been teaching since 2000, previously taught at Bentley College and Cambridge College, and is a frequent speaker. 

    Workshop:
    Emotions are integral part of being human and arise within the parties, any advisors brought into a mediation (including lawyers), and the mediators themselves.  Dealing with those emotions challenges a mediator's skill and self-awareness in the quest to facilitate a durable agreement.
