Mediating with Parents who are in High Conflict: Mediation Fast and Slow - Dr. Desmond Ellis

This webinar is designed for family mediators who are interested in enhancing their skillsets when working with parents in high conflict situations. Examples of high conflict situations will be highlighted along with eight successful mediator interventions that can be implemented and two mediator prohibitions to be avoided. These skills are appropriately used in the presence of factors that differentiate high conflict parents from separating/divorcing parents experiencing normal, everyday low intensity conflicts.
The importance of understanding negative reciprocity, and how mediators facilitate the use of cognitive skills in problem-solving with parents in this state will be discussed along with how emotions and cognitions influence each other and the decision making. We will identify and define a number of salient differentiating factors. All of us can join in discussing the practicality, utility and effectiveness of using mediation skills that facilitate the achievement of settlements by high conflict parents themselves, in their presence.
