When I took my very first mediation training course in 2000, the instructor emphasized the importance of introducing ourselves to each and every one in the room and shaking their hands when we-the mediator- walked into the room for the first time. I did not think much about it, and it has been a practice [...]

A Bully in Real Life

Life’s lessons come when you least expect them, and my mediation training comes in handy at such unexpected times. Recently, my husband and I adopted another English springer spaniel- Buddy.
