Mediation Webinars:

Join us for another webinar on Wednesday, February 17 at 11:30 a.m. We'll be discussing the topic of power imbalances in mediation. We'll talk about why power imbalances matter, how to spot them before the mediation session and strategies for managing them during mediation. Power imbalances aren't limited to domestic mediation situations and we'll explore the balance of maintaining our neutrality while also helping parties with self-determination in the mediation process.
As always, there's no registration fee for the webinars but seats are limited. If you'd like to participate, email Lucy Pauley at or call (307) 777-8788.

Workshop: Mediation & Behavioral Health Issues
April 6, 2016

We invite you to join us on April 6, 2016 in Cheyenne to learn about behavioral health issues that can arise during mediation and how to address them. Dr. Michael Rosmann, a psychologist who specializes in working with the agricultural community, will lead this half-day workshop. He writes a weekly column called Farm and Ranch Life that appears in 25 mostly agricultural publications that reach four million readers. He is a farmer himself and Adjunct Professor in the Department of Occupational and Environmental Health at the University of Iowa. Dr. Rosmann will describe common stresses that affect agricultural producers and highlight how anxiety disorders, depression, bipolar disorder and other issues impact an individual’s capacity to participate fully in mediation. He’ll also discuss techniques we can use in mediation sessions to encourage useful participation and the appropriate time to bring in outside resources. The workshop will feature a mixture of hands-on activities, presentations, discussion and take-home materials. The registration fee is $50.00. If you would like to register, or for more information, contact Lucy Pauley at (307) 777-8788 or email
