    • MCLE Conference Center, 10 Winter Place, Boston, MA 02108

    Rule 8 of the Supreme Judicial Court’s Uniform Rules of Dispute Resolution prescribes system-wide standards for court-connected alternative dispute services in Massachusetts. Its guidelines establish training, evaluation, mentoring, and continuing education requirements for mediators. MCLE is pleased to present this four-day workshop, which trains people to mediate civil cases under Rule 8.


    Basic mediation training emphasizes interactive participation and encourages “learning by doing.” It includes a mixture of theory and practice. Lecture and role-play sessions cover basic considerations in the types of disputes addressed by mediation.


    MCLE’s Civil Mediation Workshop teaches you: the steps of the mediation process; the role of the mediator; mediation skills/strategies; listening; using neutral language; rephrasing; asking follow-up questions; summarizing; identifying issues; negotiating agreement; note taking; agreement writing; ethical and legal issues in mediation; values; bias awareness; personally sensitive issues; physical/substance abuse; cultural diversity; mediation demonstration; and coached role-plays.

    Come and consider the impact of identity on conflict and conflict management through the eyes of a mediator.


    Recognizing and appreciating the many identities at the mediation table -- the parties, your co-mediator, as well as your own-- can be key to a successful mediation. We all carry multiple obvious and hidden identities with us as we walk through life.


    Develop your sensitivity to the characteristics of varied personalities as they exist and have impact on the mediation process.


    The discussion will be facilitated by Chandra Banks, District Wide Conflict Mediator for Cambridge Public Schools since 2006 and 10 years as core faculty for the Institute for Peaceable Schools at Lesley University, focused on Conflict Management, Restorative Justice practice and Cultural Proficiency training. Chandra is a life long resident of the City of Cambridge as well as an alumni of the Harvard Graduate School of Education, specializing in Risk Prevention and Counseling. She has worked as a mediation trainer for CDSC for 8 years and provides consultation and training to public and private agencies across the state of Massachusetts.

    • MWI, 10 Liberty Square - 4th Floor, Boston, MA 02109
    We all know about interest-based negotiations and getting parties to identify their needs. But there may be times when one or more of the parties involved are so emotionally driven that even they don’t know how to define a need, one which could potentially bring about a settlement. In those cases, the parties may need help in identifying what their true driver is and how to translate that into the expression of a tangible, satisfactory outcome.


    Madison “Matt” Thompson has worked for over 30 years in the areas of conflict resolution, diversity, and cross-cultural competency. He has worked with higher education institutions, major teaching hospitals, large regional banking institutions, as well as community non- profit agencies. At this Roundtable discussion, Matt and other attendees will take a look at the “Head, Heart, and Street” and will discuss ways to identify where the parties’ true driver is before our dialogue with them turns to option generation and taking action.


    MWI Roundtable events are free for all active MWI mediators. Those who are not actively mediating with the MWI Court Panel are welcome to attend up to two Roundtables per year for free. RSVP is required for all attendees and can be completed by registering online. For more information on this and other upcoming MWI Roundtables, click here.

    Democracy is in crisis today. For the first time since the end of WW2, we cannot take either democracy or universal human rights for granted. If we, the citizens of democratic nations do not invest in strengthening our democratic societies, the values we cherish, such as freedom, individual dignity, autonomy and egalitarianism, will be swept aside by xenophobia, intolerance, bigotry and oppression.


    Citizen Mediators is part of CitizenDEMOS, a collaborative started by citizens who are concerned about the health and sustainability of democracies across the world. Citizen Mediators is a wholly non-partisan initiative to step back and ask ourselves tough questions about our role as citizens; step away from our echo chambers, conspiracy theories and political biases; appreciate the uniqueness of a democratic society and its vulnerabilities; and find creative ways to strengthen democratic values and institutions and influence the larger society.


    Join Ashok Panikkar, founder of Meta-Culture and CitizenDEMOS, to learn about the Citizen Mediators initiative and movement and how we as mediators can play a vital role in influencing the future strengthening of democracy. Ashok is a mediator and facilitator who works extensively with polarized groups. Most recently he has designed and facilitated complex dialogues with stakeholders in the garment/ apparel sector and conservative Muslim/ Hindu and Christian/ Hindu groups. He has also worked on conflicts related to race, gay marriage, immigration and business and has designed and convened creative platforms for civic engagement.

    This training is for individuals interested in becoming a mediator or applying mediation skills to their personal and professional lives. This program will focus on both the problem solving orientation

    (facilitative, directive) and transformative orientation models. The training is highly interactive and will incorporate different styles of learning including presentations, demonstrations, interactive discussions and role-play practice with mediation scenarios. Guest mediation coaches will provide additional guidance and experience in your learning.


    At the end of the training, participants report an amazing shift in the way they talk, listen and problem solve – at work and in their family life. The primary focus of the training is both on learning new skills, understanding how to apply them in your life and the steps to developing a mediation practice.

    Civility in our country’s political discourse has clearly declined, and the political climate has become increasingly bitter. We have all seen public meetings turn into shouting matches or worse. But what can be done? Is there a way to elevate the tone of dialogue in our country? Can we bring back civility?


    This two-day workshop will focus on how to moderate deliberative dialogues, one of many tools that we can use to bring citizens together to reason and talk and to deliberate about contentious public policy issues facing our society. Participants will be introduced to the National Issues Forum (NIF) model, which provides a way for people of diverse views and experiences to seek a shared understanding of the problem and search for common ground for action. During this experienced-based training participants will be guided through the process of how issues are framed and the discussion is moderated.


    This workshop will train moderators how to lead a deliberative dialogue with a small group. Moderators use an issue discussion guide that frames the issue by presenting the overall problem and then three or four broad approaches to it. In this workshop, participants will be guided through the process of how issues are framed for public deliberation, how to help organizations convene and organize such forums, and how to facilitate a deliberative dialogue. They will then engage in a real dialogue session on an important policy issue. Participants will be given the opportunity to act as moderators of the dialogue and receive feedback and coaching. Special focus will be given to developing facilitation skills that can be used for dialogues and other forums participants might want to facilitate/moderate.

    Why are conflicts in family business so common, and often so extreme and intractable? Why do conventional dispute resolution approaches often fail and sometimes increase conflict? Family business conflicts are distinct from civil disputes. They can be described as identity-based and systemic, with the additional complication that continuing relationships matter and must be considered throughout the conflict management process. It is therefore essential that advisors to families who own and manage assets together acquire the insight and methodologies that can address this core competency, as the ability to manage this particular type of conflict is the most important challenge that family business stakeholders and their advisors need to understand.


    Blair Trippe, managing partner at Continuity Family Business Consulting, is an experienced negotiator, mediator, and family business consultant. She recently co-authored Deconstructing Conflict: Understanding Family Business, Shared Wealth and Power. Join her for this Roundtable discussion, which will address the triggers for conflict that inhibit people from making important and timely decisions, as well as how to approach both active conflict (when families fight) and passive conflict (when families get stuck).


    MWI Roundtable events are free for all active MWI mediators. Those who are not actively mediating with the MWI Court Panel are welcome to attend up to two Roundtables per year for free. RSVP is required for all attendees and can be completed by registering online. For more information on this and other upcoming MWI Roundtables, click here.

    Negotiation is at the heart of every human interaction. However, negotiators often fail to achieve their goals, and occasionally even damage valued relationships. This training can help you seize opportunities to improve business and personal relationships while achieving your negotiation goals. The training is based on principles of interest-based negotiation - principles that have been used successfully to reach agreement on issues as small as where to go for dinner and as important as where to draw new national boundaries.


    Through experiential learning, you will apply what you learn immediately on the big and small negotiations that are important to you. Designed for business people and lawyers as well as other professionals, and led by William Logue and Loraine Della Porta, nationally recognized trainers, negotiators, and consensus-builders, the course provides participants with opportunities to learn new negotiation skills, practice what they have learned, and receive personal feedback. Participants will learn a process for achieving better negotiation outcomes through understanding:


    - Negotiation styles--yours, theirs, and when to use different approaches

    - How to avoid common negotiator mistakes and overcome substantive and procedurial barriers

    - How to deal with difficult people and emotions--yours and theirs

    - How to identify interests and set goals

    - How to exchange information without undermining your negotiation goals

    - Strategies to start the negotiation, bargain, close and sustain the parties' commitment

    - How to maintain and build relationships throughout the negotiation


    Space is limited to 24 participants. Each participant will receive a workbook. For more information, please contact Bill Logue at the Quinnipiac Center on Dispute Resolution, 860-521-9122, or email centerdisres@quinnipiac.edu. More information and registration can also be found by clicking here.

    What are the stories we hold most dear about ourselves? What stories do we tell about others, and how do those stories take shape? Research indicates that we make sense of the world through stories. But stories - particularly the ones we tell about other people - can sometimes deepen the rifts that come between us, creating a feared other; a caricatured "Them."


    This workshop offers tools and structures for harnessing the power of stories to move beyond stereotypes and fear, bringing “Us” and “Them” into relationship through understanding. Click here for more information and to register today.
