Sometimes working as a mediator can feel like a very solitary profession. We’re surrounded by other people at mediation sessions—but we’re the only one playing our pivotal role. Afterward, we’re not in a position to discuss our performance with the participants. That can sometimes leave us feeling unsure of the impact we have had, for good or for ill, and uneasy about whether we have used our skills effectively.
Becoming part of a “Reflective Practitioner Group” offers a rare opportunity to reflect on your practice in the company of insightful and supportive colleagues, with full respect for privacy and confidentiality. Here’s a chance to learn about this growing movement.
This 75-minute CLE webinar will explore the nature, benefits, and practicalities of Reflective Practitioner Groups for mediators. You’ll gain insights into how and why to participate, learn about the different kinds of groups that have already been formed around the U.S., and get the tools and inspiration to start one of your own if you wish.
Building on a successful live program at last year’s Section Spring Conference in New York, the webinar will feature a panel of mediators with much to share on the topic:
· Amy Wind; U.S. Courts of the D.C. Circuit
· Joel Shapiro; U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit
· Richard Lord, moderator; Upchurch, Watson, White & Max mediation Group
REGISTER NOW for this truly different CLE webinar that could help bring a new dimension to your mediation practice.
