Location The Dispute Resolution Center of King County at Good Shepherd Center
4649 Sunnyside Ave N Seattle, WA 98103
The Hispanic National Bar Association, Washington Mediation Association, and the Dispute Resolution Center of King County present a workshop focused on cross cultural communication in mediation and how different cultures respond to conflict.
The workshop will include a co-presentation on how to adapt in a mediation when you feel there are cultural barriers that are leading to impasse and how to properly and ethically use an interpreter when there is a sense that a cultural interest is leading to impasse. The workshop will also include a panel discussion about what conflict looks like in each of the different cultures highlighted by the panelists, whether immigration status effects how the person deals with conflict, and whether conflict is handled differently if it is between a party of a different culture.
- FREE to HNBA members, WMA members, and active volunteers of the Dispute Resolution Center of King County
- $15.00 to all other registrants attending the workshop.
- Additional $5 fee for all attorneys requesting CLE credits
