He will present his new approach to mediating such disputes: New Ways for Mediation. This approach includes several paradigm shifts from ordinary mediation by not relying on insight, expression of emotions or discussions of the past.

Instead, this method focuses on teaching clients four simple skills to use within a simple structure that keeps them focused on problem-solving solutions and away from venting, re-working the past, extreme demands, rigid positions, and other self-defeating behaviors. The skills for mediators are also simple and less stressful, so that they serve primarily as a guide and source of information throughout the process. Some or all of the tips and tools of this method can be used with any mediation.

The training will take place virtually on November 30th and December 1st from 8am – 12pm PT / 11am – 3pm ET. You can find more information and register for the special training at Direct inquiries can be sent to
