Back to the Basics: Lessons from Mediation Training

Join AMA for our Bi-monthly member meeting as we welcome

Diane Harvey, TMCA Credentialed Advanced Mediator and Clinical Social Worker.

What do you remember from your original mediation training? What do you think was the most important lesson? What's not so important?

Like many other parts of our lives, pandemic has brought many changes to how we teach and learn, yet the basics in mediation remain constant. In fact, it can be argued that these first lessons are the most important thing you can bring to a mediation. In this interactive session, we'll be talking about the basics that are most important to us, the importance of our own differences in field, and what things that we've learned since our basic training. Diane Harvey will share her lessons from 20+ years of training and coaching. Whether new to the field or seasoned, bring your own experiences as we learn from each other!
