Increasing public awareness of the mediation process and effective conflict engagement are important aspects of Nebraska Mediation Association's mission.
Our members, who come from a broad range of disciplines and diverse areas of practice, are available to present programs to Nebraska organizations and groups to convey how effective conflict engagement processes, including mediation and negotiation, promotes collaboration and finding resolution. The benefit from effective engagement with others can be found in your organizations, family, and community. Click here for more information and to request a speaker.
Come to learn and network with your fellow mediators! This year's conference features Bernie Mayer. His recently released book, The Conflict Paradox, poses seven dilemmas that permeate our thinking about conflict, whether a family crisis, a corporate dispute, or a geopolitical negotiation. Disputants often understand their choices as mutually exclusive and ask themselves the following:
- Competition or cooperation?
- Optimism or realism?
- Avoidance or engagement?
- Principle or compromise?
- Emotion or logic?
- Neutrality or advocacy?
- Autonomy or community?
Mr. Mayer's keynote will be followed with a presentation by Aaron Weiner on mindfulness practice. Mindfulness begins with an approach that categorizes “mind objects” as a sixth sense. Once thoughts, memories, and emotions are viewed as similar in nature to sights, sounds, and physical sensations, their cause and consequence can be studied by each individual for themselves. Essentially, mindfulness is a method of investigating how our own mind works so we can choose habits and approaches that make us better mediators and better people.
