Mediation Training in Chicago

Managing the Negotiation Within: Internal Family Systems Training for Mediators and Lawyers is July 8-9 at Northwestern Pritzker School of Law

The announcement:

When embattled parties come to the mediation or negotiation
table, they are often awash in emotions and impulses that make
for difficult interactions and impasses. The Internal Family
Systems (IFS) model provides a language and framework for
helping each party identify and speak for the fearful, enraged,
or wounded parts of themselves that are driving the conflict,
and feel witnessed by the other. Once these behind-the-scenes
feelings are revealed, the atmosphere in the room often shifts
and the parties are more willing to de-escalate their conflict and
discuss their issues from a calmer, more mindful place. In
addition, IFS offers mediators and lawyers clear, practical ways
to work with their own emotions. This program is led by IFS
Founding Developer Dick Schwartz and BLC Founder David
Hoffman.
