For the past seven years, the American Bar Association has been celebrating the third week in October as Mediation Week. This year’s theme is “Mediation, Civility and the Power of Understanding.” In conjunction with that theme and this year’s celebration, the Dispute Resolution Section of the State Bar of Wisconsin published a blog listing seven ways to recognize the value of mediation for addressing conflict in our lives. I am honored to serve on the Board of that Section. As editor of our blog, I thank my fellow board members Amy Koltz and Lisa Derr for their fine work in drafting and submitting this blog. 

Please click on the link and read the blog. Then, consider incorporating mediation and other alternative dispute resolution skills into your daily problem-solving toolkit, not just this week or month, but throughout the year.
