The Art of Recognizing Transformative Moments in Mediation

Concurrent Session 1
Friday, February 23 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM
Sala Mezzo

Session Description:

This interactive participatory workshop will examine the mediation process and, in particular, the opportunities for "transformative moments" that arise in many mediations. Distinguishing from the pure transformative approach to mediation, the discussion will be focusing on particular moments or occasions during mediation that have the potential to be empowering and even transformative for the parties – perhaps even the lawyers- and what mediators can and should do to ensure that these are acknowledged and addressed.
