Resolve a current conflict and build your skills
Remember what I said on the home page about your brain playing tricks on you and looking for threats? That’s especially true when you’re in conflict with someone you once liked and trusted. Suddenly, you begin to question yourself, other decisions you’ve made, other relationships, and the way you thought the world worked. Your brain’s amygdala works overtime, fearing it missed other threats. That other someone? He or she is probably having a similar experience.
When I’m mediating, I use the Third Ear Conflict Resolution process and transformative mediation techniques to help you and the other parties in dispute work through all of this in ways courts typically do not. I help each of you:
- Clearly define the conflict(s)
- Identify the competing interests and unmet expectations driving the dispute
- Play with the possibilities of resolution and freedom
- Create the future from all available options
- Stay on PARR, Planning, Acting, Revising, and Repeating, until you get the results you want
Representative matters mediated
- Non-injury, property damage claim settled for $1.00 and an apology without admission of any wrongdoing
- Dispute between musician and videographer settled before mediation
- Conflict between department leaders settled before mediation
- Plaintiffs withdrew from mediation when defendants attempted to use the process for discovery and intimidation
Frequently-asked questions about mediation
