Narrative Mediation Dinner, Conversation and Demonstration Coming Up in April

Narrative Mediation is an approach to mediation and peace-making that “encourages the conflicting parties to reach understanding and resolution through a deep understanding of the shared personal and cultural narratives underlying the conflict. This new conflict-resolution methodology is a powerful resource for mediators and facilitators seeking to address intransigent problem-saturated conflicts.” (www.CRinfo.org).

On April 9, The Southern California Mediation Association (SCMA) with the Western Justice Center Foundation (WCJF) is co-sponsoring a salon to explore Narrative Mediation practices. Speakers include: John Winslade, PhD, co-author of Narrative Mediation, Roberta Morris, PhD, novelist and mediator (see www.mediare.org)and Najeeba Syeed-Miller, the evening’s moderator, WJCF’s Executive Director. The evening begins with a buffet supper (6 – 7 p.m.) followed by a presentation followed by conversation about Narrative Mediation and other narrative practices in peace-making (7-9 p.m.).

The salon will be held at the Western Justice Center Foundation, 55 S. Grand Avenue, Pasadena CA 91105. Cost is $20 for SCMA members, $25 non-members and it includes supper. To register in advance, contact SCMA at the SCMA Administration Office, 1430 South Grand Ave #256, Glendora, CA 91740, Ph: 877-9-Mediate, Fax: 626-974-5439, Email: SCMA@Scmediation.org, Website: www.scmediation.org.
