The SCMA would like to thank everyone that came out to our first program of 2019 – “When Good Mediators Make Bad Decisions: A Look at Ethical Fading in Mediation.” Professor Stephanie Blondell, Associate Director for Dispute Resolution at the Strauss Institute for Dispute Resolution at Pepperdine School of Law, led this interactive program to over 40 attendees.
Attendees commented that it was a “sophisticated program provided in a digestible format” and “vital to building others’ faith in the ADR community.”
Thank you Professor Blondell for an energetic and enlightening session. Thank you Pepperdine for hosting the event and for your support of SCMA.

An important, foundational approach to mediation ethics is, of course, thorough knowledge of the relevant codes, statutes, and rules in your jurisdiction. This session takes an alternate psychological approach to ethics and asks the question: How do good ethical mediators make bad ethical decisions? We will examine the range of psychological processes that lead people to engage in ethically questionable behaviors that are often inconsistent with their preferred moral code. We will explore how this ethical fading happens in the mediation profession and how to prevent it.
