The Importance of Empathy in Mediation
Neutrals interact with disputants from various backgrounds. Building rapport helps to establish common ground, emphasize similarities, and establish empathy to help parties feel more comfortable in the exchange. Attorneys representing clients may wish to build rapport not only with their clients, but with the neutral in order to be more effective communicators and better listeners. Our April 4, 2022 presenters included Jefferson County attorneys/mediators/collaborative law practitioners Frances Nolan and Virginia Miller, along with Cumberland Law Faculty/Staff members Emily Bonds Davey and Lynn D. Hogewood.
