VIRTUAL ROUNDTABLE BREAKFAST


THE ADVANTAGES OF TRANSPARENCY IN MEDIATION

LISA RENEE POMERANTZ

 

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

Typically, the mediation process is fairly opaque to participants. They understand the general purpose and that sessions may take place jointly or in caucus.  However, they often do not understand the nature of barriers to resolution, the strategies available to mediators, and why they may be deployed at different junctures. To the extent the mediator is evaluative, participants are often aware of what the mediator has shared with their side, but not necessarily what is shared with the other side. In this presentation, we will explore the potential benefits of a more transparent approach to mediation.
