Coaching Global Mediators
Another very successful sold-out fall training on Mediating Disputes with led by Prof Mnookin, Friedman and Curtis took place at Harvard, with dozens of participants from around the world. Dinnar was instrumental in designing and launching this course with Prof. Mnookin several years ago, and provided personal coaching to mediators during simulations.
The success of any mediation is predicated on the skills of the mediator. In this popular program, participants acquire the practical skills and techniques for facilitating negotiations between disputing parties. From family and employment matters to public policy and business disagreements, we uncover effective ways to settle differences and mediate disputes across a variety of contexts. We provide participants with core mediation skills and training, as well as examine the mediation process through the lens of both caucus and non-caucus models of practice. We consider the role of law, as well as interest-based bargaining, in shaping mediated settlements, and address legal and ethical issues in mediation, in addition to the psychological dimensions of the mediation process.
