SCMA is proud to announce the formation of a new panel of mediators to assist the court and our membership in coping with the end of most court-administered ADR.
All current SCMA members will be eligible to be listed in the SCMA directory of mediators, provided that they can certify that they are currently members of the Superior Court’s mediation panel, or have an equivalent level of training and education. At least through the end of 2013, there will be no additional fee to members for listing in the directory, and there will be no administrative fees charged to users of this service. The public will be able to access information about SCMA mediators through an improved “Select a Mediator” page on the SCMA website. Members will be able to edit their own listings on that page.

The Center for Civic Mediation hosts a training with Bill Eddy. This seminar will train professionals from all fields to identify the interpersonal conflict dynamics of high conflict personalities, intervene in their aggressively defensive behavior, recognize common cognitive distortions for those with high conflict personalities, apply recent brain research to changing high conflict behavior, and apply key skills for managing people with high conflict personalities. These techniques apply when dealing with coworkers and employees as well as clients and collaborators.
