About the Webinar

High-conflict clients (and any clients) do better in mediation when they are taught key skills before the mediation begins. This webinar will introduce the four big skills of New Ways for Families, and teaching formats from counseling to an online class to a brief pre-mediation coaching session. Bill Eddy developed this method and it has been used in family court systems, counseling agencies, and by mediators themselves in the United States, Canada and Australia. Some research will be presented showing that nearly 80% of previously high-conflict cases can reach out-of-court agreements after learning these skills. Video clips and case examples will be provided.
