Advanced training in Appreciative Inquiry, transformational technologies, nonviolent communication, powerful nondefensive communication...I could go on.
What, if any, ADR organizations or groups do you belong to?
What else do you want to tell the ADRhub.com community (what you are up to, what you would like to do in ADR, etc.)
I'm up to transforming the legal profession and have been focused on that for more than a decade. I just wrote a book published by the ABA in April, 2010: Lawyers as Peacemakers, Practicing Holistic, Problem-Solving Law that includes sections on many forms of law that would fall under the ADR umbrella. I work with major media on issues related to a new approach to law - have two pending pitches for documentary series now.
I am looking forward to your visit to do some continuing education on peace making here in Colorado.
I turned Google loose to see in more detail what you are doing here and this what I came up with from Stephanie West-Allen who is back in Denver and will keynote our statewide ADR conference in November:
I just received this e-mail about Kim's visit to Colorado (posted with permission of Libby Comeaux):
"What if lawyers were peacemakers, problem-solvers, and healers of conflicts?"
J. Kim Wright, author of Lawyers as Peacemakers and publisher of CuttingEdgeLaw.com is always on the move. Before she gets to Salt Lake City to deliver a keynote September 23, some of us are asking her to stop in Denver - Boulder (possibly Fort Collins) for a gathering or two, possibly the weekend of September 17-19 or even a bit earlier. If you are interested in hearing more, please contact Libby Comeaux for specifics as they develop.
