Mediators are being asked to manage and resolve more high-conflict disputes.


As high conflict legal disputes increase, mediators are being asked to manage and resolve more of these disputes.

This trend requires more training in understanding and managing high conflict behavior during mediation and in developing agreements which are sustainable long afterward. 

Our methods and training provide a paradigm shift for mediating with those clients who are not responsive to ordinary mediation methods. We focus on an overall structured approach for high-conflict mediation which incorporates these paradigm shifts.

We've learned that what helps is to do the opposite of what we do in traditional mediation using approaches that work with most people. Our high-conflict mediation training provides a new way to enhance your existing mediation skills with paradigm shifts that seem to bring more success when there are one or more high-conflict people involved.
