The dynamics of addressing a dispute differ if one or more parties do not involve legal representation, an option that is becoming increasingly prevalent in this day and age. This workshop offers readings, activities and videos to focus on the unique challenges posed when mediation involves one or more self-represented parties.

Topics include: why someone opts to represent themselves, informed consent, buy-in, mediation agreements, consideration of a support person, how to handle an uneven playing field, participation options, process flexibility, legal advice and preparing for mediation.

Attendees can work through this 5 hour asynchronous workshop at their own pace. It is divided into ten 1/2 hour lessons, with a short quiz of three questions offered at the end of each lesson.
