Thompson, Leeds, and Krudop Facilitate Discussion on Implementing Barns Work.
Inspired by the recent Texas Mediation Credentialing Association symposium by C. Richard Barns, Mary Thompson, Margaret Leeds and Walter Krudop presented “Teaching Negotiation: Best Practices for Mediation Trainers” at the November 4, 2013 TMTR meeting in Austin, Texas. The one-hour training included a facilitated discussion on how to implement Barn’s work in mediation training. Specifically, Thompson, Leeds, and Krudop, all highly regarded mediation trainers, highlighted topics on communication skills and theory and negotiation from Barn’s video “Strategic Negotiation Skills”. Discussion rendered a variety of specific and practical ideas for weaving Barns’ work into mediation trainings.
