“The Mediator's Dilemma: Joint Session, or No Joint Session-The Case, Analysis, and Creative Ideas” by George Knox.
This session will explore the opportunities and challenges of including joint sessions in the mediation protocol. The discussion will feature candid and provocative arguments about whether the mediator can enhance the likelihood of agreement by the creative use of all items in the facilitation toolbox. The discussion will include suggestions about how to effectively blend joint sessions and caucuses into a combination of formats that expand the universe of options for the mediator, and minimize the discomfort of the parties.
