Raise your conflict resolution strategies and skills, form meaningful and long-lasting professional connections, and benefit from the insights generated by an interdisciplinary group of practitioners dedicated to their craft. Whether just starting out or after many years of practice, Mediators and Collaborative professionals face complex legal, emotional, and ethical situations every day.
This group is designed to harness the knowledge and insight of yourself and your colleagues to explore some of the most challenging issues faced by practitioners.
Under the guidance of Woody Mosten, participants will bring mediation and Collaborative practice problems or questions—those that arose because of a success or frustration, or it could be something in a case you are currently grappling with.
Using a Reflective Practice model to invite questions from the group, Woody will facilitate a discussion to clarify the problem and help you discover new approaches for dealing with the situation. Woody will also share his years of experience, offering advice and recommendations for solving seemingly intractable practice situations.
Case Consultation and Study Group begins Tuesday Oct 26, 2021 and meets via Zoom on the fourth Tuesday each month from 9am-10:30am PT/12pm-1:30pm ET. In February, we will meet on Feb 15 instead of Feb 22.
As a recovering litigator, it is quite exciting to commence a new way of being and doing. I've been meditating for the past 5 years, but have straddled between both worlds. The old one just doesn't fit anymore. It is comforting to have a group of supportive professionals around me while making this shift. The truth is that being vulnerable and waiting for things to gently shift are not typical ways of being for an employment and family litigator. It's refreshing to know that after 20 plus years in the other world, I can grow and change. Like some of you, I have a successful law practice, which I enjoyed for many years. I love my clients and many of my colleagues. But I have grown past this, and I need to be true to myself and the universe! I look forward to your support. I need it - to turn down litigation clients and the $$$ to make space for this practice. If I don't do that, there is not enough space in my calendar or my heart for what is next.
