“In today’s world, everything seems to be geared towards confrontation rather than a solution. Being trained as a mediator is a way to help change this culture.” –Mitch Frumkin, President
On October 20, Kipcon Project Manager Seth Frumkin attended the Mediation Training Course, which was hosted by the CAI-NJ Alternative Dispute Resolution Program. As a certified mediator, Seth is now qualified to act as a neutral party in order to help resolve community disputes.
After attending the program, Seth spoke on some of his primary takeaways.
“Mediation is not about being a third person involved in the negotiation, but to facilitate negotiation between the two parties. It’s a guided negotiation…It’s very important to be perceived as being objective from both parties.”
Seth now has the knowledge and ability to successfully assist disputing parties in reaching a mutual agreement outside of a courtroom.
