Love, Death and Money; to Caucus or Not to Caucus
Gary J. Friedman
| Mediation Law Offices
When was the last time your mediator conducted a Joint Session? Most parties don’t want them, and their use has become controversial. In this program, you will learn WHY Joint Sessions are useful tools, and HOW they can be used most effectively. You will also learn how to use a Joint Session to “bring down the heat” in high conflict disputes in order to achieve a full and satisfying resolution.
World renowned mediator, teacher and group leader Gary Friedman has mastered the art of the Joint Session, and is here to share his ideas with you, whether you are a mediator or a litigator mediating on behalf of your client. Gary explains how separate caucusing with each side results in the mediator being the only participant with the full picture and turns the mediator into a judge or arbitrator. Simply stated, the parties should be the ones to resolve their dispute.
