Mediation Webinars

One party who won't stop interrupting or calling the other side names. A mediator who feels his/her neutrality starting to fade. A disagreement with a co-mediator. One party revealing some new information in a caucus that is going to throw a wrench in the whole process. You don't have to be mediating long to encounter a difficult situation. Using scenarios and guidelines from The Mennonite Conciliation Services' Mediation and Facilitation Training Manual, we will discuss difficult situations in mediation and strategies for working through them. We want your input too! We put together a quick survey ( to gather examples of difficult situations you encountered and how you addressed them. We'll share the results with the rest of the group so that we can learn from each other.

The webinar will take place on Tuesday, July 26 at 11:30 a.m. (MDT). As always, there is no registration fee for the webinar but space is limited. If you'd like to participate, contact Lucy Pauley at (307) 777-8788 or email We hope you can join us in July!
