High-Conflict cases are the cases that we dread to mediate. We often feel frustrated, hopeless and angry about them. They include one or more parties with a high-conflict personality: lots of all-or-nothing thinking, unmanaged emotions, extreme behaviours (yelling, storming out, silently sabotaging or refusing to consider other options) and a preoccupation with blaming others—sometimes even the mediator! If you’ve ever been stuck and uncertain how to proceed in these cases, or perplexed about how to shift clients from rigid all-or-nothing demand to a more reasonable position, this seminar will help.

 A different mediation approach is needed with these cases, one that shifts the burden of problem-solving onto them and off of the mediator. New Ways for Mediation, a method developed by Bill Eddy, LCSW, Esq. of the High Conflict Institute will be presented. Participants will learn new skills for clients to use during high-conflict mediation. These include five significant paradigm shifts from ordinary mediation. These methods are not designed to replace what already works, but rather to use when other methods like emotional exchanges and insight just don’t work. The training includes lecture, video, and practice exercises.
