Introduction to Insight Mediation

Training in Seattle April 24, 2024 – with Jacinta Gallant

In divorce work, the professional “in the middle” can feel a lot of pressure to manage behaviours that block productive dialogue and get in the way of finding meaningful solutions. And yet, our dominant negotiation model falls short when it comes to addressing the irrational and demanding behaviors and the (understandably) strong emotions that we experience in our work.

Insight Mediation offers a theoretically sound foundation for working with conflict behaviours in a way that doesn’t threaten, facilitating dialogue rather than debate. It is being lauded as the “fourth pillar” of conflict resolution and divorce professionals are describing it as “transformative”, “sensible, deep and practical” and even “life-changing”.

In this one-day training in Seattle, Jacinta Gallant will introduce Insight Mediation.  We will start with a definition of conflict that makes sense for the relational work we do. As we gain an understanding of the “how” and “why” of conflict behaviours, we will work with Insight skills to effectively engage.  You will leave this training with a better sense of what is going on with challenging client behaviour, and how to effectively work with it, rather than containing it.
During our day together, you will start asking more, and telling less, and feel the relief that comes from an approach that is grounded in understanding human behaviour. Join colleagues who want to:

  • be more comfortable and authentic in conflict situations
  • respond (rather than react) to obstructive behaviours
  • bring productive curiosity to your work, and your life.
