We will offer sessions on framing questions and working with different personalities in mediation. Sessions will also cover risk assessment, ethical dilemmas, and confronting bias in mediation. Featured speakers include top mediators from across the country to bring you a well-rounded day of learning and building upon your mediation skills.
