Topic to be announced
Russell Woods, Ph.D., University of Utah, Department of Communication Professor
Description of topic
The essence of mediation is communication and negotiation between parties. As mediators we facilitate this dialogue, which includes our own communications and those of the parties. It is important to realize and understand that the messages we send to others as we talk contain two major elements: content and relational instructions, which are different from verbal vs. nonverbal cues. Professor Woods will explain the importance of understanding the essence of relational communication, and recommendations for being a successful communicator.
