7th Annual San Francisco Peacemaker Awards

Community Boards presents: Compassion & Collaboration in Conflictual Times

Friday, June 2 2017

City Club, SF

Morning Workshop: 8:30-11am

Luncheon, Awards Ceremony & Keynote: 11:30am-1pm

Purchase tickets here!

 

Keynote Speaker: DANA CURTIS

As the distance between ourselves and others widens in the face of conflict - whether in the realm of politics or relationships - our ability to communicate and connect is vulnerable to collapse. Likewise, our hope things can change. Dana Curtis will offer her thoughts about how we can narrow the divide and bridge the gap between ourselves and the "other."

Dana Curtis, a Bay Area mediator since 1991, values opportunities to mediate disputes in which the quality of resolution matters at least as much as "making a deal." Dana has published articles and books about mediation, including Appellate Mediation: A Guidebook for Attorneys and Mediators. She loves teaching about mediation and has done so throughout the US and internationally, including ten years at Stanford Law School and, more recently, in Harvard Law School's Program on Negotiation, where she co-teaches Mediating Disputes.

Dana is soon to become an Adjunct Professor at the University of Santa Clara, School of Law, where she will serve as Director of Conflict Resolution Programing. Visit Dana's website.

Community Boards: Working With Cultural Differences in the Dispute Resolution Process

Cultural differences can pose a challenge to mediators in the dispute resolution process. They can form barriers, block communication, and intensify emotional issues, and yet add a level of richness to the process. When mediators recognize, acknowledge, understand and accept differences, we can use that information to bridge gaps in a positive and productive way.

During the workshop, we will discuss a number of questions:

  • How do different people interpret the meaning of certain actions, behaviors and strategies?
  • What are some frequently encountered cultural differences about how we as mediators interpret certain actions and behaviors during mediation?
  • What are some common cultural differences about how we "judge" what is productive behavior during mediation?
  • What are some common cultural differences about the styles in which we mediate disputes?  

Peter's clinic will give you an opportunity to further familiarize yourself with these issues and enable you to thoughtfully and mindfully reflect on those differences based on your personal mediation style. Participation is encouraged -- role-play exercises are an integral part of this workshop.

Presented by Peter Huang:

Peter has spent almost twenty years as a lawyer and alternative dispute resolution professional.  He has a wide range of experience with intellectual property, commercial, employment and international disputes.  He has also provided corporate counseling to various business entities.

Forgiveness in Family Mediation

  • Opera Plaza

Trainer: Katharina W. Dress, MA

Strained family dynamics, especially unforgiven injuries from the past, prevent many families from successfully communicating and collaborating across generations. If they seek help in Family Mediation, their unresolved hurt can get in the way of finding solutions for the present and future. Creating space to address pain from the past BEFORE discussing possible agreements for the future can be crucial to a successful mediation.

Katharina’s training offers an introduction to a simple “Healing and Reconciliation Process (H&R)” to help lead mediation parties towards forgiveness and self-forgiveness, so they can create deeper connection and open up new possibilities for mutual understanding and collaboration.
[MCLE available.]

30-Minute Mediation with Ron Kelly

An Amazingly Effective Drop-In Process  
More than a decade ago, Ron started an experiment. Could you design a mediation process that could really help two people with a serious relationship problem in only half an hour, start to finish? The model has proven astonishingly effective.
Since then he has used this process to help numerous couples, family members, co-workers, neighbors and others. Ron has been asked to teach it to everyone from community volunteers to court mediators. 
In this workshop you'll learn this simple process, see it demonstrated, and get a chance to practice it in a real dispute. 

Ron Kelly

Mediating since 1970, arbitrating since 1986, Ron is a co-founder of two of California's main ADR professional organizations. 
Ron has trained thousands of lawyers, judges, government officials and business professionals on four continents, and his training materials are licensed and used around the world in several languages. Judges in every superior court in the Bay Area have chosen to enroll in his trainings.          
Ron is one of the principal architects of California mediation law. He's been honored with eight major ADR awards for his work in building the field, including Peacemaker of the Year in California, and Honored Instructor at Berkeley.

Complex Issues in Child Custody Evaluations

  • Northern California Mediation Center

Many clinicians who have completed the training mandated by the California Rules of Court still find that undertaking a child custody evaluation is both challenging and demanding. For example, how does an evaluator assess allegations of abuse in the midst of intense family conflict?  How does one wade through conflicting reports when a child is refusing to spend time with a parent?  How and when can an evaluator recommend a multi-step parenting plan to keep parents from returning to court every six months?  And, how to manage and resolve the conflicting demands when fashioning a shared parenting plan for infants and toddlers?

Especially if you are relatively new to the field, this two-day workshop will enable you to work more confidently and effectively as a custody evaluator by building on your baseline training, expanding your knowledge and familiarizing you with current research and clinical approaches.  Interactive teaching sessions will emphasize both theoretical approaches and practical applications.   

This course brings together five highly knowledgeable and veteran forensic psychologists, each with more than 20 years of experience in child custody evaluation, mediation, alternative dispute resolution, forensic consultation and education. 

DATE:                January 20-21, 2017 from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm (each day)
FEE:                  $600 ($550 if paid by 12/08/2016; $575 if paid by 12/22/2016)

Special Needs Children in Divorce & Separation

  • Northern California Mediation Center

Family courts have seen a dramatic rise in children diagnosed with various types of neurodevelopmental, psychiatric and medical syndromes. These children may be described as having “special needs” since their day-to-day functioning is often compromised. In such instances, typical parenting plans may be inappropriate. 

This training presents a multi-factor risk assessment model that assists professionals in developing effective parenting plans for these “special needs” families, including timeshare and decision-making. Also, the unique challenges, disputes and gate-keeping issues that may be encountered in such cases will be identified and addressed. 

This full-day workshop for attorneys, mediators, bench officers, and mental health professionals will provide specialized knowledge on some of the most common conditions seen in family law (i.e., autistic spectrum disorder, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder and mood disorder, especially in teenagers).

FEE: $275 ($225 if paid by 11/01/2016; $250 if paid by 11/10/2016)
