    MWI’s Housing and Eviction program is an advanced mediation training designed for mediators interested in helping tenants and landlords resolve housing and eviction disputes.

    25 years ago, Public Conversations Project created a unique approach to dialogue that promoted connection and curiosity between those who saw one another as the enemy. Their approach, now as Essential Partners, has transformed conflicts across the country and the world - but its principles are widely applicable for everyday conversation. An intentional communication process can help individuals, organizations and communities build trust, enhance resilience for addressing future challenging issues, and have constructive conversations with those they otherwise “wouldn’t be caught dead with.”

    In this workshop led by trainer Dave Joseph, participants will learn basic theory and the practice of Essential Partners’ relationship-centered approach to better communication and dialogue and will be empowered to achieve a shared, clear and mutually understood purpose in a conversation.

    As our world stumbles toward an “all welcome” place and well-known figures go public as transgendered, mediators will be more likely to see transgender issues arise in divorce and family mediation. No longer kept secret, the nuances of grief, anger, loss and rebirth for all family members become part of the divorce/family conversation. As one wife stated, “it’s like grieving the death of my husband while we are divorcing.”

    Holly Hitchcock is a mediator, primarily focused on divorce and family mediation, with extensive experience working with families and transgender issues. This session will explore that experience of hers, along with the mediator’s role in creating a neutral, trusting mediation environment; understanding the distinct emotional processes of clients and their children; facilitating the core divorce agreements in concert with physical, medical and psychological changes; establishing clear ethical boundaries with clients and outside providers in the legal, advocacy, and therapeutic arenas.

    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.
