This event will take place on Thursday 2 December 2021 from 10:00 am - 11:30 am EST.
As we enter Fall 2021, mediators and parties alike find themselves in a post-pandemic mental health crisis that includes widespread, documented burnout. This “age of burnout” impacts every aspect of mediation, including self-determination, mediator impartiality, and the quality of the mediation process. In this interactive workshop from the Columbia Law School Advanced Mediation Clinic, participants will learn how to identify symptoms of burnout in conflict resolution, and what people need to keep in mind when resolving conflict. Additionally, participants will discuss how to deal with burnout and the effect of burnout on our ability to conduct conflict resolution impartially, promote diligence, participation, and procedural fairness.
