The Mediators: Principles of Mediation

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2016

 

The mediators 340

Mediation is usually a term applied in conflict that is local….ie a divorce. Obviously it is also applied in larger conflicts…let’s say like party squalor in the US House of Representatives….or international conflict. In our series “Principles of Mediation” we intend to show the basic Principles of Mediation (duh) and then see how they can apply to larger issues on the national and international scene. Each principle will be sourced so as to give you greater idea of landscape of mediation (which is quite large) and also, we’d like to relate these principles to dynamic realties….so that you can see them in action, and maybe one day (maybe today) put them into action yourself, maybe in a friendship, in parenting, or maybe on a wider, more public scale.

Mediation Defined

From

IAMA-transparent-background-cropped-300x117

Mediation is a process in which an impartial third party (the mediator) facilitates the resolution of a dispute(s) between two or more parties by promoting the parties’ voluntary agreement (or self-determination) of the dispute(s).

The mediator facilitates communications, promotes understanding, focuses the parties on their interests and seeks creative solutions to problems that enable the parties to reach their own agreements.

Teachers’ Unions: Noble…Yes…Flexible?…Not So Much.

Tuesday, December 16th, 2014

Speaking with someone from the American Federation of Teachers on 12-13-14  in DC. I came away with much more respect for Teaching Unions, and  for quite a bit of Teachers’ Unions do…but as we’re seeing with the Police Union in New York City..there can be a blanket un-nuanced vibe…after this very guy told me teaching unions never do anything wrong….I came back the next day with more of a conversational and critical tone.  However, he did have some wonderful things to say ,though. Hope to talk to these guys again…maybe a few times.
