    An ADRIA Event

    This three-session role-play practice package is for those that wish to practice their mediation skills in role-play.

    Participants will be placed in groups of three or four and assigned role-plays in which they will be either the mediator, one of the parties or in the case of groups of four, an observer.

    The schedule for the three-sessions will be assigned in advance and emailed to the participants. For each group there will be two role-plays per session and over the course of the three sessions, each participant will have the opportunity to mediate at least twice. (Exact number will vary depending on the number of participants that register and some role-plays may be co-mediations.)

    Each group will have a coach that will provide feedback on skill integration. The coaches will not be doing skill drills, or completing role-play evaluation forms.

    The focus on these sessions is role-play practice with verbal feedback from the coaches. Participants are welcome to record their role-play (when they are the mediator).

    *This course will be presented online. In order to participate in this format, students must to be available during session times listed without distraction. In addition, students require a strong internet connection, computer with a webcam and microphone.

    Changes to the Divorce Act and ADR


    Lunch and Learn

    Wednesday March 10, 2021


    Join us for a panel discussion regarding the changes to the Divorce Act, what it means to ADR, to families and you.


    Panelists: 

    Diana Lowe, QC 

    Sharon Crooks, President AFMS

    Hon. Justice Andrea Moen (frmr)

    Moderator:  Don Schapira, QMed



    Diana Lowe, QC

    Diana Lowe, QC is a lawyer with 35 years of experience which includes legal practice, research and reform of the civil and family justice systems in Canada, and most recently as Executive Counsel to the Chief Justice of the Court of Queen’s Bench of Alberta. Diana recently retired from the Court and established a consulting practice - “Re-imagining Justice”. She continues to support the Reforming the Family Justice System (RFJS) initiative in Alberta, and also works with other jurisdictions interested in justice system transformation.

    The RFJS is a multi-year, multi-sector collaboration, designed to effect system-wide change in the family justice system in Alberta, based on brain science and Adverse Childhood Experiences. The RFJS is seeking to shift the focus in family justice matters away from adversarial, legal responses, to making supports available to assist families with the social, relationship, parenting and financial issues that arise in family matters. The outcome collaborators are seeking is family well-being, which they define as “Helping Families Thrive”.


    The Honourable Andrea B. Moen

    In September 2018, the Honourable Andrea Moen retired from the Alberta Court of Queen’s Bench to which she was appointed on January 1, 2000.

    Her judicial work involved all areas of the law including family law which she believed to be the most important work she did as a judge.

    She frequently observed high conflict in her courtroom between parents in their fights over their children. Wondering about the children, she asked the question of what happens to the brains of those children when they are exposed to the conflict of their parents. As a consequence of her research, the Court was a founder of the Reforming Family Justice System initiative which seeks to find ways that families can thrive even when the parents are living apart. She believes that court is the wrong place for families to resolve their conflict.

    Andrea Moen has a Masters of Social Work from the University of British Columbia, and a Certificate in Conflict Resolution from the Justice Institute of British Columbia.

    What’s Unique about the Transformative Model of Conflict Intervention?

    A 2-hour webinar presented by Robert A. Baruch Bush, J.D

    Thursday, March 11, 2021
    11:30am - 1:30pm Eastern*

    *(this is a time change from the original)
    FMC Members $105
    Non-members $115

    This 2-hour webinar will identify and discuss three ways in which the transformative model is unique and different from other approaches to intervention.  First, the model is theory-based – that is, it articulates the theory of both conflict and human nature that underlies the model.  Second, the model is focused on “interaction, not transaction” – that is, it sees the primary goal of intervention as supporting positive interaction rather than solving problems that arise in transactions.  Third, the model privileges party agency and self-determination in all aspects of the intervention process – that is, it is a fully client-driven approach to intervention.  These three core aspects of transformative intervention will be explained and illustrated.  Time will be afforded for questions after the main presentation.
     

    Robert A. Baruch Bush, J.D., is the Rains Distinguished Professor of ADR Law at the Maurice A. Dean School of Law at Hofstra University where he teaches courses on mediation, ADR and other subjects. He has practiced, taught and written about conflict resolution and mediation for over thirty-five years.  Professor Bush is the author of five books and over thirty articles and chapters on mediation and ADR; his work is widely cited by other scholars and excerpted in many major texts.  He has lectured and conducted training all over the U.S. and Europe and led the team that helped the U.S. Postal Service design a nationwide program for mediating workplace conflicts.  Bush is Co-Founder and Board Member of the Institute for the Study of Conflict Transformation (ISCT), a nonprofit think-tank devoted to developing resources on the transformative approach to conflict and intervention. Together with Joseph P. Folger, he co-authored The Promise of Mediation (1994, 2d ed. 2005), a book that has been called one of the most influential works on mediation in the last decade.

    An ADRIA Event


    Mindfulness Meditation for Mediators

    Self-care and professional development are perennial concerns for mediators. Mindfulness meditation can be an effective tool to enhance both.  In study after study practitioners of mindfulness have been shown to experience less stress and a lessening of anxiety, hostility and depression. Improved mood and a lowered reactivity to disturbing stimuli, both external and internal, have been demonstrated. The practice of mindfulness directly cultivates many other qualities and skills usually enumerated as essential in a mediator. Some of these are calmness, centeredness or groundedness, the ability to be present in the moment, and the ability to pay attention intently and non-judgmentally. 

    In this session we will explore the many benefits of mindfulness for mediators and learn this simple technique which, like mediation itself, only deepens the more it is practised. The facilitator Mark Donovan, C.Med, has both an academic background in Buddhist studies and long familiarity with the practice of meditation. 

    Time: 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm 

    This session will be ONLINE ONLY

    Fairness in Arbitration & Mediation:  A Personal Perspective

    Lunch and Learn

    Wednesday, April 14th, 2021


    Whether you are a mediator or an adjudicator, fairness is a very important characteristic to maintain.  But what exactly does this entail? 

    In this presentation, I will suggest some simple rules to follow when mediating or adjudicating disputes between various parties. 

    These include formalistic legal rules, such as not being biased, giving proper notice to each side, and allowing each side to present and be heard as well as informal rules that will assist in getting the buy-in from each of the parties involved.

    Wellness Workshop II – Full-Day Workshop on Health and Well-being of ADR Practitioners

    This is a full-day workshop focused on the health and well-being
    of dispute resolution practitioners that includes an interactive and practical focus on their mental health and wellness.

    Everyone practicing dispute resolution in some capacity,
    whether experienced, new or aspiring to do so should attend this unique program as it focuses upon aspects of practice that are not taught in training programs or given enough consideration. (Rarely does this topic receive the sole focus this workshop offers.).

    NEW ADRIC ONLINE COURSE

    Med-Arb Foundational Workshop

    Med-Arb is becoming an increasingly popular way to resolve disputes. It can be designed to resolve disputes most typically encountered efficiently, effectively and fairly in everyday personal and commercial matters including disputes involving both lower and higher monetary amounts and disputes where relationships are of lesser or greater importance. It can be used in family disputes, commercial disputes, partnership disputes, landlord and tenant disputes, condominium disputes, and many others.

    When designed and conducted appropriately, integrated med-arb can be highly client-centric, fair, effective, and satisfying. On the other hand, if it is inappropriately designed or conducted, it can lead to confusion, frustration, and litigation.

    This med-arb workshop, delivered by Colm Brannigan and Richard Moore, both highly experienced dispute resolution professionals, is an intensive three-day practical immersion in the knowledge and competencies required to run a fair, effective and efficient med-arb process.

    Participants will explore where med-arb fits in to the overall conflict management continuum, how it compares to other dispute resolution processes such as mediation, arbitration, and litigation, and when its use is appropriate.

    Participants will be given a solid theoretical understanding of med-arb and the practical skills and tools to confidently conduct efficient, effective, and fair med-arb hearings.

    Topics covered include: an overview of the med-arb process, the benefits, and challenges of the process, standards of conduct and ethical issues related to the process, the negotiation and drafting of the med-arb agreement, developing a reflective practice, transitioning from mediation to arbitration, how arbitrators make decisions, award writing, and practical professional considerations for the med-arbitrator.

    The workshop will take place in a positive and supportive learning environment using interactive adult teaching methods. All participants will be given opportunities to practice as a med-arbitrator at various stages throughout the med-arb process. Teaching methodologies include short lectures, case studies, demonstrations, small group discussions, interactive exercises, and role plays followed by constructive feedback.

    Whether this is your first foray into the world of Med-Arb or you are well versed in it, you will be able to enhance your practice by taking this unique program which will fulfill the education requirements for the new ADRIC C.Med-Arb designation.

    Who should take this workshop? The workshop will be of interest to practitioners with a wide variety of subject matter expertise including mediators, lawyers, arbitrators, tribunal members and those supporting them, internal conflict management program participants, and anyone wanting to seriously enhance their conflict management and med-arb knowledge and skills.

    Format:  This course will be presented online, through Zoom.

    Required equipment:  The program will be presented through in modules. Attendees need a computer, tablet or phone, an internet connection (wired recommended), a microphone and video camera to be seen or to participate by audio or video.

    Conflict is everywhere. Whether we think we are always stuck in the mud or able to rise above all the drama, we could all use some tips to better understand conflict.  When we understand conflict (what it is, its value, where it comes from, and tools available), we are better equipped to do something about it and approach it more confidently.  Understanding conflict may seem like “common sense”, but if that were the case we would all be much better at mitigating and managing it. Research shows that humans are less likely to deal with difficult topics they do not feel knowledgeable about.  By building a knowledge base, students will gain a sense of self-efficacy to take the plunge and experience the joys of approaching conflict with confidence.

    Whether you are a professional, in the trades, or in the service industry this course will help develop your interpersonal skills and add to your professional repertoire. This course is suitable for parents, teens, managers and supervisors, boards, committees, and teams.

    OBJECTIVES:

    his interactive course is designed to introduce students to basic conflict concepts, including:

    • what is conflict,
    • the value of conflict,
    • what contributes to conflict,
    • roles in conflict,
    • key components of conflict,
    • transforming conflict into something solvable,
    • and basic takeaways for managing conflict when it inevitably arises.

      OUTCOMES:

      This course is designed to introduce students to new ways of looking at conflict.  With these new understandings, students will be able to approach conflict more confidently and effectively.  Students will have easy-to-use tools that apply to a wide range of conflict situations.

      Many people confound assertive expression with being aggressive. But this is not the case. Being assertive is about expressing your rights and needs without hindering the rights and needs of others.

      The ability to be assertive, for many, takes practice. But it is practice that is well worth it.

      Assertive communication is about respect for yourself and for those around you with whom you communicate – it shows that you believe what you have to say is important, that you trust them enough to tell them what you need, as well as that you trust them to be able to hear what you have to say. 

      OBJECTIVES:

      This course is designed to give you greater confidence and skill in asserting your ideas, thoughts, and needs.

      • Learn to identify what you really need and then to ask for it.
      • Learn the principles and benefits of Assertive Expression
      • Practice “I Language”, Behaviour Description, as well as giving and receiving feedback in low-stakes and high stakes situations
      • Learn new tools for self-disclosure to balance out conflict conversations and to keep conversations productive
      • Understand the role of anger in conflict and how to use and defuse it

        OUTCOMES:

        Students will have more skills for using assertive communication effectively and will be more confident using these skills in their daily lives, as well as in conflict.  Students will have opportunities to practice skills in ways that give them flexibility for use in their lives.

        This course is also available as private training.

        The potential for conflict is everywhere, and escalation and high conflict behaviours are almost unavoidable for many professionals working in conflict resolution. Mediators, and allied professionals, working with parties involved in potentially high conflict mediations need to understand and manage complexity, emotional intensity, and challenges that may arise during a mediation.

        Using a trauma informed practice perspective, this course prepares mediators to manage aspects of high conflict mediations, including safety screening, dealing with parties experiencing poor mental health, addictions and substance use issues, strong emotions, and challenging behaviours associated with personality disorders.   Mediators will be equipped with the tools to determine whether to proceed and, if so, to mediate what can be high conflict discussions.

        We all have conflict in our lives.  Whether you deal with others’ conflicts or have your own, becoming skilled in managing it can be a game-changer at home, at work, and at play.  It may be tempting to say that the problem is “other people”, but we cannot change other people more than they want to be changed. Instead, students will learn ways to change what can be changed, the “negotiables”. 

        In this course students will learn the importance of separating the person from the problem and skills that will help them discover previously unimagined possibilities for resolution. 

        OBJECTIVES:
        This course is designed to give you the basic skills you need to more effectively manage conflict, including:

        • Learn to separate the person from the problem, by:
          • understanding your role in conflict
          • learning to frame conversations around resolvable and neutral terms
          • recognizing the difference between your perceived best solution and a wise solution
        • Gain a deeper understanding of your own and other’s needs and motivations, including how to uncover them, through:
          • reflection, active listening, curiosity, and commitment to resolution
        • Find common ground and work towards resolution
        • Practice skills that are essential to conflict resolution, including some of those used by mediators, principled negotiators, and peace builders.

        OUTCOMES:
        This interactive and applied training is designed to get students applying key concepts and practicing conflict management skills from the start of the course, so students will leave the course feeling able to start applying their new skills.

        This course is also available as private training.

          An ADRIA Public Offering



          Many people confound assertive expression with being aggressive. But this is not the case. Being assertive is about expressing your rights and needs without hindering the rights and needs of others.

          The ability to be assertive, for many, takes practice. But it is practice that is well worth it.

          Assertive communication is about respect for yourself and for those around you with whom you communicate – it shows that you believe what you have to say is important, that you trust them enough to tell them what you need, as well as that you trust them to be able to hear what you have to say. 

          OBJECTIVES:

          This course is designed to give you greater confidence and skill in asserting your ideas, thoughts, and needs.

          • Learn to identify what you really need and then to ask for it.
          • Learn the principles and benefits of Assertive Expression
          • Practice “I Language”, Behaviour Description, as well as giving and receiving feedback in low-stakes and high stakes situations
          • Learn new tools for self-disclosure to balance out conflict conversations and to keep conversations productive
          • Understand the role of anger in conflict and how to use and defuse it

            OUTCOMES:

            Students will have more skills for using assertive communication effectively and will be more confident using these skills in their daily lives, as well as in conflict.  Students will have opportunities to practice skills in ways that give them flexibility for use in their lives.

            This course is also available as private training.

            DATES:

            August 18 & 19 (9:00 -12:00)

            NEW ADRIC ONLINE COURSE

            Med-Arb Foundational Workshop

            Med-Arb is becoming an increasingly popular way to resolve disputes. It can be designed to resolve disputes most typically encountered efficiently, effectively and fairly in everyday personal and commercial matters including disputes involving both lower and higher monetary amounts and disputes where relationships are of lesser or greater importance. It can be used in family disputes, commercial disputes, partnership disputes, landlord and tenant disputes, condominium disputes, and many others.

            When designed and conducted appropriately, integrated med-arb can be highly client-centric, fair, effective, and satisfying. On the other hand, if it is inappropriately designed or conducted, it can lead to confusion, frustration, and litigation.

            This med-arb workshop, delivered by Colm Brannigan and Richard Moore, both highly experienced dispute resolution professionals, is an intensive three-day practical immersion in the knowledge and competencies required to run a fair, effective and efficient med-arb process.

            Participants will explore where med-arb fits in to the overall conflict management continuum, how it compares to other dispute resolution processes such as mediation, arbitration, and litigation, and when its use is appropriate.

            Participants will be given a solid theoretical understanding of med-arb and the practical skills and tools to confidently conduct efficient, effective, and fair med-arb hearings.

            Topics covered include: an overview of the med-arb process, the benefits, and challenges of the process, standards of conduct and ethical issues related to the process, the negotiation and drafting of the med-arb agreement, developing a reflective practice, transitioning from mediation to arbitration, how arbitrators make decisions, award writing, and practical professional considerations for the med-arbitrator.

            The workshop will take place in a positive and supportive learning environment using interactive adult teaching methods. All participants will be given opportunities to practice as a med-arbitrator at various stages throughout the med-arb process. Teaching methodologies include short lectures, case studies, demonstrations, small group discussions, interactive exercises, and role plays followed by constructive feedback.

            Whether this is your first foray into the world of Med-Arb or you are well versed in it, you will be able to enhance your practice by taking this unique program which will fulfill the education requirements for the new ADRIC C.Med-Arb designation.

            Who should take this workshop? The workshop will be of interest to practitioners with a wide variety of subject matter expertise including mediators, lawyers, arbitrators, tribunal members and those supporting them, internal conflict management program participants, and anyone wanting to seriously enhance their conflict management and med-arb knowledge and skills.

            Format:  This course will be presented online, through Zoom.

            Required equipment:  The program will be presented through in modules. Attendees need a computer, tablet or phone, an internet connection (wired recommended), a microphone and video camera to be seen or to participate by audio or video.
