Mediator Resilience in High Conflict Cases
| J.D., Ph.D.
In order to avoid impasse in high conflict cases it is essential that the parties feel that we understand them and care about them. And yet the openness required to make empathetic connections leave us vulnerable to the toxicity that is often present in such cases. In this talk, Steve Sulmeyer will explore ways in which mediators can increase their capacity to tolerate high levels of emotional stress while still remaining open and present, as well as discuss proven interventions. The result is better outcomes for clients and healthier experiences for mediators.
