Lunch 'N Learn on Microaggressions

Microaggressions and Mediation

What are microaggressions? Ar we aware of them? What happens if they occur during a mediation? Participants will discuss how to handle daily verbal or nonverbal hostile and/or negative communication and behaviors.

Neutrality and impartiality are important keystones of mediation; nonetheless, mediators may bring biases and preferences with them to the mediation table, as do the parties. Mediators are responsible for becoming aware of these biases, especially when they are unconscious so that they can conduct themselves in an impartial manner.

Presenter Alan Gross, Ph.D. has been a mediator, arbitrator, facilitator and trainer for more than 20 years. He served as Senior Director and 9/11 Family Mediation Coordinator for the Safe Horizon Mediation Program in New York City. He has also served as an Ombudsman for the American Psychological Association, an arbitrator for FINRA and AAA, and a mediator for the US Postal Service REDRESS and the U.S. Army.
