Integrative Mediation (IM) is a pioneering approach to conflict resolution that pairs a conflict resolution professional with a psychotherapist or mental health professional to address all aspects of a dispute: legal, financial, psychological -- and emotional. By addressing the underlying emotional issues of the parties, IM seeks to improve the odds of a more efficient, cost-effective process and the achievement of a deeper, more lasting resolution. The pairings may consist of a lawyer, financial planner, or mediator working alongside a mental health professional. Using this holistic approach, parties in conflict are far more likely to resolve their legal, business, and/or family disputes quickly and in a more rational and sustainable manner.
In this webinar, Kathleen Adams. LCSW outlines the foundational theory of IM and spells out the advantages and limitations of shared conflict resolution. She shares real-world examples of IM-based resolutions and data that support this approach.
Who should attend:
>> Professionals who believe that no conflict is fully resolved until the underlying emotional conflicts have been addressed
>> Mediators working to enhance and expand their practice
>> Attorneys, psychotherapists and other professionals seeking to create professional relationships outside of their domain
