Mediating the Pandemic, Politics, Police and Racism
In this two-hour course, you will learn important lessons mediators can learn from the conflicts we are experiencing regarding the pandemic, racism, politics, and policing? How we have handled them — personally, relationally, professionally, organizationally, socially, economically, and politically, and how might we have handled them better? How do we conduct meaningful discussions of highly contentious, values-based topics without degenerating into pointless diatribes? How do we build trust between adversaries in difficult circumstances where time is limited, history is long, resources are scarce, and positions have hardened? Are we slipping into authoritarianism, how can we know if we are, and what can we do about it as mediators? So many questions, so few answers.
