The Rhode Island Mediators Association invites you to join us and our special guests for our Sixth Annual CELEBRATE MEDIATION - RI Event.
CELEBRATE MEDIATION RI 2016
"CALLING or CAREER: The Aims of Mediation in the 21st Century"
Frederic Reamer, PhD,
Dr. Reamer will speak to the essential elements of a (secular) calling, the implications for mediators, and the relevance of the diverse paths mediators take to this vocation of "Mediator" (e.g., law, mental health counseling, education).
Reamer is a professor in the graduate program of the School of Social Work, Rhode Island College. He has conducted extensive research on professional ethics and lectured nationally and internationally on the subjects of professional ethics, professional malpractice and liability. He has been involved in several national research projects sponsored by The Hastings Center, the Carnegie Corporation, the Haas Foundation, and the Scattergood Program for the Applied Ethics of Behavioral Healthcare at the Center for Bioethics, University of Pennsylvania. He is the author of many books and articles on professional ethics, criminal justice, and research methods.
He is the producer of the compelling series "This I Believe – Rhode Island", which broadcasts weekly on RI Public Radio. The series is modeled on the national "This I Believe Project".
He chaired the national task force that wrote the current Code of Ethics adopted by the National Association of Social Workers.
Over the years, Dr. Reamer has made guest appearances on various radio broadcasts throughout the country. His own "This I Believe" essay was broadcast nationally on NPR's "All Things Considered" in 2005 as part of that series.
Come and share in the conversation about RIMA's "Aspirations for a Mediation Friendly Community in Rhode Island". This annual "CELEBRATE" event was the first of its kind in bringing together RI Mediators Association members, judges, interested colleagues and friends, and invited government, business and non-profit interests to celebrate the "Advancement of Mediation in Rhode Island".
