Conflict and the Green-Eyed Monster

Since my husband's job has kept us "on the move" over the past few years, our family has inhabited quite a few different homes. Some have been newer or bigger than others, but, suffice it to say, they've all been pretty nice.

But, that doesn't seem to matter to my kids. If you were a fly on the window in our car, you would swear we live in a cardboard box under the overpass! Every large home we pass comes with sighs of awe and someone shouting out "I call that one!" from the…

That Made My Blood Boil

Did you know that there was a belief that blood actually boils when people become angry or excited? We know that is not true and even has a sort of sci-fi feeling to it. However, that made my blood boil is an expression used by some of us when commenting on something that highly offends us. Wiktionary describes…

The Bug & the Wish

Teaching children conflict resolution skills is probably one of the most important contributions that we can make! So when I came across this idea ... I just had to share.

I would like to thank a teacher named Ms. Lou for blogging about this tool she uses in her classroom in Canada.

So here's how it works:

First, you need a bug and a wand. In her classroom, the bug is a bee.…

A Very Needed Reminder…

So, last week, I had a play date (a time for some grown-up conversation while the children are preoccupied with someone else's toys).

But, this play date was a little different. Whereas most of my social encounters are with people whom I've known, at least for a little bit, this one was different. This "Mom" and I passed each other every day while picking up our children from their half-day at school--but, we never conversed, other than to nod or say "Good Morning."…

"Woulda Coulda Shoulda"

The following description of the words “woulda coulda shoulda” sometimes applies to the experience of being in conflict: “For many people, there is a clear distinction between what actually happened and what they wished would have happened in a given situation. Sometimes, people realize a number of options they could have or should have taken instead of the action they actually took. This…

"Reality" TV, Violence and the RPM

It's the time of year when people are thinking about resolutions and taking better care of themselves by eating better, exercising more, maintaining better work life balance and so forth. One other thing you may want to consider is what you feed your brain via the media.



We are bombarded with digital information all day long. In previous posts, I have already touched on the negative impacts of information overload in terms of our effectiveness. When our attentional capacity becomes… Continue

Recognizing Pragmatic Interests Originally posted on Medation Works http://goo.gl/gAfY5f

Mediators help parties to settle disputes by facilitating discussion and encouraging the parties to explore, acknowledge, and understand the other’s motivations and interests.  Lawyers, judges, and mediators should all remind parties in a conflict that the pragmatic reasons to settle a case or dispute are…

Thank-you Bernie Anderson

It was with a heavy heart that I read about the passing of Assemblyman Bernie Anderson earlier this month. Most of his colleagues probably don't know this, or perhaps don't remember, but Mr. Anderson was instrumental in funding the Neighborhood Mediation Center (NMC) here in Washoe County.

In 1997, he sponsored a bill (AB 208), which modeled the successful Clark County Neighborhood Justice Center program and encouraged smaller counties to start justice centers of their own.

The…
