  • The basic principles of psychology that are relevant to mediations, especially when it comes to understanding what’s happening when things get difficult 
  • How to handle your own emotions on the other end of difficult clients, lawyers and mediators 
  • How to identify the “emotional case”: the parties’ nonmaterial interests, core needs, and identity needs 
  • How to manage the legal case and the emotional case that are both fundamental components of every dispute 
  • The impact of Zoom
