This program is designed to enhance knowledge in the areas of employment mediation, the psychology of settlement, strategies for overcoming stumbling blocks in dispute resolutions, international arbitrations and the rules governing mediators.

A presentation from the Executive Director of the North Carolina Dispute Resolution Commission provides an opportunity to refresh on old rules and learn how to avoid the pitfalls of being a mediator. (This program includes two hours of CME credit.)
