ADR: Domestic Violence Screening Made "SIMP[LE]" (Simplified Initial Mediation Prescreen)
Many ADR practitioners do not have a system to screen for domestic violence (DV) and Intimate Partner Violence (IPV), and many screening guides are overwhelmingly lengthy and difficult to apply in practice. In this presentation, attorney and ADR provider Carl Arnold proposes a new model that he is calling "SIMP[LE]" (Simplified Initial Mediation Prescreen). It is a short, accessible DV/IPV pre-screening tool that is tailored to use for Mediation and other ADR processes. This model proposes that every ADR practitioner should develop 3-5 limited, non-leading questions that they ask every ADR client in order to improve the effectiveness and appropriateness of their initial DV/IPV screening for ADR. This model is not intended to replace the SAFeR model from the Battered Women's Justice Project but instead would be a pre-screen to more in-depth DV/IPV screening where appropriate.

ADR: Goal Setting  – Commencing a Client-Centered Path to Resolution
Many professional websites include a statement like “Our goal is to provide an optimal experience for our clients.” Goals are important! But what about our clients’ goals? Are we as mindful about learning what is truly important to them in their divorce process? And are we paying enough attention to what might be the shared goals of spouses or partners going through a separation or divorce? Discovering shared goals can make a divorce process much more positive and productive, and this begins with attorneys or a neutral helping each spouse or partner articulate their goals. Join us to learn more about how goal-setting with clients can enhance the process of reaching a settlement.

ADR: Mediation Is Confidential, Right?
Confidentiality in mediation is one of the most complex and incompletely understood issues in ADR. Yet one of the major reasons that participants choose mediation is because of the privacy that they believe the process will provide. The analysis of confidentiality, however, is not always as straightforward as some may believe. A basic understanding of the sources of mediation confidentiality, the scope of the protections afforded, who and what is protected and the possible exceptions to confidentiality is essential to effective advocacy and participation in mediation. Join experienced mediator and educator, Leslie Sinner McEvoy, for a closer look at mediation confidentiality in Minnesota  – for mediators, advocates, and participants.
