Mediator Settlement Proposals:
Combining Client-Centered Communication with Evaluation
While client empathy and facilitation are the foundations of successful mediations, there are many times when clients need more from a mediator. In the first half of this APFM study session, Woody Mosten will share his 45 years of experience and provide a step-by-step template of how to deliver a mediator proposal based on the consent of the parties and with a client-centered approach.
In the second half of the session, Woody will invite participants to share difficult issues in their cases. He will provide consultation, thus helping everyone to get to the next level in their development as professional family mediators.
